In Response To: Re: Gnop! and the beginnings of Bungie (MrM12LRV)
: It seems like Gnop! began in 1990 and was finished in 1991. I guess the order
Actually, I believe the order of events is correct. There is definitely proof that the name, “Bungie”, existed before the completion of Gnop.
Earliest found copyright:
Last modification of Gnop (final additions, tweaks, etc):
It seems that Bungie didn't officially start as a company until 1991. The wording on bungie.net seems to follow the Marathon Scrapbook, but upon closer inspection, it actually differs slightly...
Bungie's History [bungie.net]:
Also, notice the quotation marks around the word “Bungie”. This suggests that Bungie wasn't official yet (maybe):
It was 1991 and Alexander Seropian was in his basement apartment
I can't find the Gnop copyright information, but I did find some stuff on Operation: Desert Storm:
Operation : Desert Storm.
April 4 1991? Now we're getting somewhere! It doesn't meet up perfectly, but, perhaps Seropian registered/copyrighted O:DS, but, didn't actually release it until he had “officially” started Bungie...
“Bungie began as a company one crisp morning in May of 1991, but that wasn't exactly the beginning. Before it emerged, fully formed as the multinational corporate behemoth that published Operation: Desert Storm...”
