Thayer's Quest became the home video game "Kingdom". Rick Dyer Industries closed because of changes made by Phillips Inc. and the decision to stop producing the large laser disks. However, emerging technologies at the time CD (Compact Disc) became the new medium for this video game. It's counterpart games were Dragon's Lair, Space Ace, and Shadowlands. Brilliant animation by Don Bluth and terrific visuals made this an unusually superior product in it's day. It must be remembered these games are to video games what a "Jupiter" class rocket was to the NASA space program. Early test platforms for what now is the Playstation II, X-box, etc.

It also should be remembered that video games are the most complex form of entertainment available and the product of minds the equal to an Einstein or Werner Von Braun were required to envision them..
