Les Bird, C7 programmer, is porting the game to the iPad.

youtu.be/nRt7GPQ5oEo

While I had recent email chats with him recently, I don't know the specifics on this. I asked him how he is doing the port, whether by DOSBox style emulation, finally finding the lost source code(!), or a code rewrite, but he has yet to get back to me on it. He is planning to clean up the controls and release it on the App Store eventually.

Looks promising. Here's to hoping he'll show the iPhone/iPod Touch a little love as well.

Huh... His mentioning it in his email was the first I heard of it. I must be losing my edge. Shocked

Does he have the rights to Corridor 7 to release this on the ipad?

Doubt it. Nobody knows who owns the rights to it, if anyone even does. If he does release it, perhaps the current owner will catch wind and we will find out who the rights holder is and harass them accordingly to release it into the public domain. Very Happy

A year or so ago, I once caught sight of a strange Corridor 7 box on Ebay; the owner had posted shots of both the front and back of it. It had the logo of Expert Software on it (along side Capstone's logo of course) and said copyright 1996 (rather than Gametek, GT Interactive or 1994).

1996 was when Capstone's parent company, Intracorp went bankrupt taking Capstone with it. Expert Software was ultimately brought out by and then eventually fully merged into Activision.

EDIT: Shock! it's still on Ebay: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Corridor-7-Alien-Invasion-Brand-New-still-SEALED-and-complete-in-box-PC-1995-/200901797397?pt=Video_Games_Games&hash=item2ec6ae2615

I guess no-one has brought it yet.

The wording of the copyrights on the bottom of the box are interesting; the 1994 releases declare Intracorp as the sole owner with no specific mention of publishers Gamtek or GT Interactive. Where as the wording on this 1996 release seem to declare Expert Software as the copyright holders and only gives Intracorp credit for making the game.

But then I have no understanding of legal jargon.

Actually, that was just a last minute licensing deal with Intracorp. I had that copy of the C7 box and it definitely said that Intracorp was the copyright owner of the game software. If you focus on the picture of the back of the box and use eBay's zoom function, you'll see the first line reads "Program and manual (C) 1994 Intracorp, Inc." I have three different CD releases of C7 and all declare Intracorp as the (C) holder.

Mix of a blessing and a curse. If the software wasn't handed off, then it could be considered abandonware and free to do with as we please. If it was bought by another company, we may never know who. Sad

I personally have made several attempts over the years to contact the licensors about Capstone's library. I've never got a reply from anyone.

GT was purchased by Infogrames who then was bought out by Atari who is now owned by Hasbro.
Expert is part of Activision.

Out of curiosity, I did a search of the US Copyright Office's online records.

When I searched for Intracorp, it brought up several titles for them. Witchaven, Chronomaster, and Tekwar.

Unless it was registered under a different name, there is no sign of Corridor 7 or Operation Body Count.

I even tried Capstone and only brought up Witchaven as a relevent result.

I'm not familiar with the way Copyright info works, but if an item under a certain copyright would change hands, wouldn't it be mentioned somewhere on the original/previous copyright?
