Video Game: Miner 2049er
A pioneering Platform Game created by Bill Hogue, Miner 2049er stars a fat Mountie named Bounty Bob who explores the derelict uranium mine that once belonged to Nuclear Ned in pursuit of the Swedish fur trapper Yukon Yohan. Bounty Bob must "claim" all the stations in the mine while avoiding or eliminating the mutant organisms that live there.

Originally released in 1982 by Big Five Software for Atari 8-Bit Computers, the game was soon ported to a wide variety of home computers and consoles.

A sequel, Bounty Bob Strikes Back!, was released in 1984. This game was also the reason Manic Miner got its name - Matthew Smith originally wanted to call it Miner 2049er, but this game came out first and the publishers had the copyright on the name.
