"Gnop!" was the first computer game created and published by Bungie Studios [ [http://www.bungie.net/inside/history.aspx?link=HistoryOfBungie_p1] "Bungie.net : Inside Bungie : History" Retrieved on 10 August 2008.] . It was a simple "Pong" clone written and released nearly 20 years after the original. The name "Gnop" is simply "Pong" spelled backwards. The game was created by Alex Seropian in 1990, almost a year before Bungie's official incorporation. The game did prove popular enough among mac gamers since the game was a free, user friendly alternative. However, some fans were willing to purchase the source code, which Bungie offered for $15 (USD).
