[News] [Retro]

I remember it clearly - the first time I laid eyes on the behemoth machine.  It's mere presence beckoned me from across the room like the wafting scent of fresh pastries from a bakery.

As I approached, my eyes caught site of the visual masterpiece displayed on its large screen.  I had never seen anything like it!  I apprehensively crept toward it.  Could it be trusted?  I had to find out. 

Upon reaching the sleeping beast, I looked down.  Fifty cents?  Seemed steep, but this did not deter me.  I dropped two quarters in and began my adventure...

That was 25 years ago.  Hard to believe it was so long ago.  I never did complete the quest, but I was so close...many, many times.

“I can’t believe it’s already been 25 years!” said Dragon’s Lair creator and legendary film animator Don Bluth. “To think a small project conceived by Rick Dyer would become such a beloved classic is something I couldn’t have foreseen. I don’t think Dirk and Daphne have aged a day!”
