Hi! Smile

I wonder whether Rockford already has a definite birthday? For example, the release date of Boulder Dash 1, does anyone know it exactly?

Rockford has no birthday. He is hatched. Wink

Well, not officially, but we call this inbox-transformation that, as long as I can remember.

If you really must know, try asking the company which released the game. On first sight, this might be trivial since everyone know that First Star released the game. However, the Microfun release could be available before that. Unfortunately, we couldn't even solve this curiosity.

I'd say it's Peter Liepa's call. Wink

Cool

Thank you for the info. If even a Logic De Luxe doesn't know, I can be sure that nobody does Wink

Hi!
Now I got an answer from FSS. Unfortunately the webmaster wasn't yet with the company at that time, but she says that the game was finished already in 1983 and suggests to celebrate his birthday on Jan 1, 1984. What do you think? Wink

Arno did this interview with Peter Liepa. He might know how to contact him.

Also, I wonder, how much he was involved in the C64 port. Sadly, this question isn't in the interview.

Here's PL's answer:

Hi Dustin,

Thanks for your question, but I never really thought of Rockford as
having a birthday. He's timeless Smile

Best Regards,

Peter

And now? Smile
