Digger was created in 1983 by Rob Sleath, one of the founders of Windmill Software, Inc. which produced nine quality games between 1982 and 1984, in the dawn of PC gaming. While completely outdated by today's standards (and even 90's standards), Windmill introduced some advanced techniques, and Digger had some of them.

Heh, this was epic... but excruciatingly tedious at the same time, and i never spent too much time playing it, although it's an aknowledged classic and we should all bow to it :)

Cool, I wasn't aware that this game had such a cult following. :)

Never played it that much myself, but I still remember playing it for the first time like it was yesterday: Cool Popcorn-music (which didn't sound half bad considering the PC-Speaker) and a strange duck on wheels shooting its head at even stranger monsters.

Dear Sir, I object strongly with the last thread, and the next post.

Digger was created by Windmill Software in 1983 and released as a copy-protected, bootable 5.25" floppy disk for the IBM PC. It was designed to work on an IBM XT/AT with a CGA adapter; it relies on the CPU for timing, so it will run too fast on newer PCs.
