The Box to 5708 LEGO Rock Raiders for the PC
The 5708 Rock Raiders PC Game was released on November 15, 1999 as part of the Lego Rock Raiders franchise. It added many new elements to the storyline. Over the years, the game has acquired a cult-classic fan-base Rock Raiders United, which is devoted to modding and improving on the original game, as well as enthusing about the Lego Sets themselves. There are six Main Characters: Chief, Bandit, Axle, Jet, Docs, and Sparks, however most of these characters only appear in Cut Scenes and various messages in-game. Most of the Rock Raiders in game are similar in appearance to Sparks.
It was originally listed "220574 Rock Raiders PC CD-ROM" with a price of $39.75. The price was soon reduced to $20 (MSRP) and was often packaged together with another popular game released at the time LEGO Racers. Originally slated for release in September, it was pushed back two months for further development.
It was developed by Data Design Interactive in conjunction with Artworld UK and published by LEGO Media International. (more...)
