Having played PC/console games since they came into existence, I often wondered about the process, technology and skills required to create a game.
Many years ago, a university colleague brought to my attention this little game that in its entirety fit on one 640kb floppy disk. The game, Elite II was my first foray into space sim genre of gaming. Despite the graphics capabilities of the day it was every bit enjoyable. This however was the 2nd installment of the series, the first – Elite – was published in 1984. 31 years later, Elite is BACK AGAIN, only this time, it is DANGEROUS!
Been a good couple months or more since my last Sim flight and boy did it show. I think the only time I wasn’t chasing the plane was during the cruise. Vertical speed on landing was a woeful -400 ft/min.
