According to Wikipedia, Webfoot DROD was released in 1996. So happy 25th anniversary to the first edition of the DROD series!

As for myself, I hadn't heard about DROD until I saw the JtRH review in the 2006 US print edition of Macworld, which is mentioned in this thread.

Nice! Here's to the next 25! Anyone happen to know the approximate release day? We should have a 25th birthday celebration for DROD on the forum.

Based on versions of the Webfoot Games website captured by the Wayback Machine, it was released some time between November 19th and December 20th, 1996.
