    Steve:

    I don’t exactly remember. My recollection is that our Mac games didn’t sell that well, and we didn’t have a programmer on staff who was passionate about the Mac. I’m trying to remember who coded the Mac games and no name is coming to mind. My guess is that the Mac version was done by one of our DOS programmers who never really liked the Mac and wanted to go back to programming a PC. Alternately, we may have outsourced it. I’m pretty sure the conversions weren’t particularly well done.

    You didn't say what game you wanted to remake — or, I missed it.   

    That said .. it doesn't matter. When Roberta and I sold the company we gave up all of our rights. We were well paid, so I'm not complaining.

    I have no idea who owns the rights to our games these days. 

    I would definitely encourage you to make a game. There is a huge market. It can be hard to break into the business, and there's a good chance whatever game you do won't sell .. but, you'll learn with each game you produce and there's nothing wrong with adding to your base of experience.

    Good luck!

    Sorry — I didn’t hang onto any of the source code.

    I’m not sure it even exists anymore… 

    Good luck!

    Thank you for the link! 

    The video brought back a lot of memories. I can’t believe we had The Sierra Network years before the internet, and then botched it up.

    It still looks great, even by today’s standards…

    Brandon: I thought it was you who was with me the day I found them .. .in my garage at Alki beach. 

    If not you .. now I’m trying to remember who it was…

    I would love to have a hi-res scan of the cover. One probably exists somewhere .. but, I don’t have it.

    I do have a box of slides from the photoshoot that are somewhere deep in my storage shed. But.. I’m not sure where. I found them a few years back and wished I had sent them somewhere to be scanned, but all I did was put them back in the box. Darn!

    Those were the days!

    Sorry — I agree that was a great piece of software — but, no … I don’t have any patches.

    Best wishes!
