The Great Readysoft Mystery

Posted by Kelley on 1/23/2002 1:05:37 PM


Yo, Bros and especialy Bruno for his kick ass site!

He definetly has alot of treasures to view on his site, including pretty much every single DL/SA conversion to home computer/video game systems.

Okay Homies! We all know in the early 1990's Readysoft (now dead and became Digital Leisure) were responsible for the first true authentic conversions of the arcade LD classics DL and SA for Amiga/PC/MAC.

When DL, SA and DL II:Time Warp were first released for their respected computer platforms they were placed on floppy discs. The lack of storage resulted in less than half of the entire Laserdisc game to be released. The results were still pretty kick ass, to finaly have a conversion available to the home consumer and I'll always rember those times as special, happy times awaiting the release of each title for my 386, adlib, EGA powerhouse!

With less than half of the original LD game content released Readysoft decided to release "SEQUELS" to their original diskette releases. Thus came "DL: Escape From Singe's Castle", "SA II: Borf's Revenge" and "DL III: The Curse of Mordread". These sequels included a good chunk of the left over game/animation from the original LD games as well as new animation created by Readysoft to help provide an overall new story.

With DL 3, they included a Pirate Ship moment which was in design and planning stages by Bluth and the gang but never executed/completed. The "Blackbeard the Pirate" Scene was created by Readysoft obviously with Bluth's original design work.

Peace!
