BASIC Programming release month?

Random Terrain

Recommended Posts

An article at gamasutra says that BASIC Programming was released in June of 1979, but A History of … Games claims it was released in July. In a Halcyon Days interview, Warren Robinett said that he finished Adventure and BASIC Programming in June of 1979. If what he remembered is correct, how could BASIC Programming have been released in June or July? Wouldn't there need to be more time to get the cartridges, manuals, and boxes made?

Well it could be he is not remembering correctly. I guess he could have finished early June and if they had everything else ready maybe they could have released at the end of July.


Good to see your are done with 1980. After 1979 are you heading to 1978?
