Search for the Golden Dolphin

Search for the Golden Dolphin is a first person educational adventure video game released in 1999 for Windows 95, Windows 98, Macintosh. The game was developed and published by Cinegram Media Inc. in association with the Mystic Seaport museum, as part of Cinegram's Digital Treasures series. The game became the latest in Cinegram's Digital Treasure series of maritime adventures and tales, after such titles as The Amistad Incident, Tall Ships, Romancing the Wind, as well as American art video game Norman Rockwell: The Man and His Art. Cinegram's president Hal Denstman served as the creative force behind the title and came up with the original concept, while Fred Van Lente was in charge of writing the script. Interactive 3D scenes were created to showcase life aboard 18th century wooden combat ships with a level of accuracy and immersiveness. A comprehensive resource section and historical timeline were added to the game to offer further contextual information for the player to explore. "Cruise of the Declaration" was developed as the companion middle-level educational unit for the game and included a teacher resource guide.

Due to its historical nature, Peter Stanford, president of the National Maritime Historical Society, offered support and accuracy for the nautical elements of the title. Meanwhile, Captain of HMS Rose Richard Bailey offered a replica of a 1750s era British light frigate; the game takes place in 1799 and the player plays as a United States Navy Officer with the mission of retrieving U. S. S. Golden Dolphin stolen by pirates; the player must use clues given to them to determine the ship's position, as well as how to retrieve it. The gameplay has a design philosophy of "intellectual stimulation", requiring the player to use a level of imagination and innovation rather than; this was favoured over a shoot-em-up style of gameplay that sees the player "mindlessly clicking a mouse to eliminate the bad guys". Tom Houston of Just Adventure felt that the game's strengths outweighed its weaknesses, giving it a B+. Inside Mac Games' William Lemmon wrote that the game did contain some bad acting and ill thought out puzzles, that it would be uninteresting to players who didn't care for the historical setting.

Lisa Karen Savignano of Allgame thought that while the game as a whole was "really great", it was hampered by the "extremely annoying and frustrating" character interaction interface. Quandary's Steve Ramsey gave the game a mixed review and awarded it a rating of 1 start out of 5; the Cincinnati Post noted the while the game was "intended for youngsters", it had appeal to older players too. Computer Times awarded the game with its Editor's Choice award, deeming it "one of the most professionally designed CD-ROM adventures we've reviewed". Home page

A backbencher, he spoke on subjects of local government and planning, he advocated collectivist social advancement, opposing greater direct redistribution of income and wealth. As such in the House of Commons he argued against measuring poverty in relative terms, saying: It seems unsatisfactory to define poverty by reference to average incomes because if that were the true position, Labour Members could eliminate poverty completely--if they were able to do so--by expropriating all incomes of, say, 50 per cent.

Of average incomes or above. That would make for a tremendous reduction in poverty, according to the definition of Opposition Members, but nobody would be any happier or better off, it might please those with egalitarian passions, but it would not add anything to the good of the country. His specialist area of advocacy is planning law and he was called to the Bar in 1960. In 2015 he practised from his home address in Fulham, he married Caroline Dugdale in 1964.

He is the author of Tarzan: The Centennial Celebration, the "only official commemorative illustrated history" of Burroughs' literary character Tarzan, which book was a 2013 Locus Award finalist for Best Art Book.

Griffin took an idea for a commemorative book to Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc. which owns the Tarzan trademark, the company contracted with him to "compose the franchise's history."Griffin's "lavish" and "well-researched" coffee-table book" on Burroughs was published by Titan Books in 2012.

Burroughs biographer and retired Pasadena City College professor Robert Zeuschner said of the book that "Until now, there has never been a single source which could be used to examine the original pulp magazine art, the dust jacket covers for the early printings, the comic book covers and interior art, the huge number of Tarzan movies made after the silent era." Griffin was born in Starkville, the son of Jesse E. Griffin, an optometrist, Sarah D. Griffin, who worked as "a homemaker and for Alexander's Home Health." As a child, he told an interviewer for List Film, he was an "animal lover", "captivated by the notion of interacting with apes and other exotic species." He became fascinated with Tarzan at age 9 when he saw an image of the character on the side of a lunchbox. Griffin graduated from Starkville Academy and received a bachelor of science degree in sociology from Millsaps College in Jackson, Mississippi, he moved to California around 1988 to become a writer.
