Donkey Kong

February 10, 2012 by staff 

Donkey Kong, A spin-off of the cult game Donkey Kong, “Dinky Kong”, will take its rightful place alongside new computer software programs in a collection of trans-Tasman digital heritage.

Researchers from Flinders University in Adelaide are documenting Australia and New Zealand’s digital heritage – from amateur-made computer games of the 80s to a contemporary software program that forensically sanitises computers.

The Australasian Heritage Software Database (AHSD) is the first publicly-compiled record of trans-Tasman software history, documenting programs created for a range of sectors including the arts, business, banking and defence.

The database contains more than 120 contributions from both professional and hobbyist software writers so far.

They include Dinky Kong, an amateur spinoff of the cult 1980s videogame Donkey Kong and a software device developed in New Zealand in 1984 to label, price and dispense medication in pharmacies.
