“Good Job!”

Last week I happened to find Tim Skelly’s email addres while I was surfing. Tim Skelly is the programmer of the original arcade version of Rip-Off.

So I emailed him and said ‘thanks‘ for making one of my all-time favourite arcade games and asked him if he’d tried, or even heard of, my remake of Rip-Off, and if he had any comments on it.

A few days later I recieved a reply, and among other things he said ‘good job‘, so that was very nice. I’ve heard from a few sons of programmers but I think this is the first time I’ve had a reply directly from the original programmer himself.

…and that the game is Rip-Off makes me very happy.  My first “officially sanctioned remake”. Yay. 😉
