Slater & Charlie Go Camping was the first game by Sierra's Red Dog division, Sierra's answer to the Broderbund educational games that were coming out at the time. Sierra rented space next to NAPA auto parts in a nearby strip mall where a local video rental store was (and had movies coming in the drop slot for a few weeks after they started until they blocked off the drop slot). The game was written, produced and directed by Bill Davis. It uses Sierra's SCI engine and VGA graphics and was released for the IBM PC and Macintosh. It was later rereleased as a Sierra Originals game.
