The games released on Golden Disk were a mixed bag in terms of quality and surprisingly the cover neither mentioned Trenz nor Markus Siebold.
Trenz wrote Enforcer under a pseudonym although it was fairly common knowledge who "The Master" was. It was reasonably well known but, because Golden Disk didn't travel far out side Germany, the only way for most of us to get their games was as cracks so it took a while for people to get their hands on it.

At that point the C64 still had several dedicated magazines and a supply of commercial games, it took a couple more years for that to dry up until it was just the indies keeping things alive.
