I was just wondering, if there are any old VGA Planets players lurking around here. I know Master of Orion rings a bell here, so I was wondering. (MOO was made by people who were in the initial player group of VGA Planets, largely living in the same street as the VGA Planets developer Tim Wisseman).
For those that do not know VGA Planets, it was popular between 1990 and 2000, but by then it was showing it’s age (It’s primarily DOS based, although it does have a windows version) and the developer tried to create a version 4 that never seemed to have taken off, in my view because it was too ambitious for a one man developer, and it seems to have died after 2004. For it’s day and age, it was quite popular (65 000 players) and it seems that the developer lived of it’s proceeds for most of that decade.
Seems the community here might have a few old players lurking, so I was curious.
