TRIVIA: JAGD AUF ROTER OKTOBER was Argus Press Software's one-and-only 16-bit game release prior to declaring bankrupty in 1987, but not before transferring software copyrights/licenses and company assets elsewhere ahead of time. In late 1987, ex-Argus Managing Director Stephen Hall formed Grandslam Entertainment out of the ashes of Argus and publication of JAGD AUF ROTER OKTOBER was resumed by the new software house.
