Bruce Webster and Wayne Holder for FTL Games
Apple II machine in Apple (UCSD) Pascal and assembly in March 1984. Ported to the Atari ST with some additions circa 1985. (back when there were Real Programmers dammit, and 64K was a LOT of ram!)
Way ahead of its time in terms of gameplay and interface, SunDog was the first of many amazing releases from FTL.
I wonder what video games will be like 2076i would hope there'd be at least SOME kind of holographic or holodeck aspect to gaming by then, maybe via direct neural input to induce sensory impressions. You'd close your eyes, jack in, and a whole world of sights, sounds, smells, and feelings would engulf your brain. For all practical purposes, at least in your mind, you'd BE in that world.

The next step is to run clinical trials of DCA in people with cancer. These may have to be funded by charities, universities and governments: pharmaceutical companies are unlikely to pay because they can’t make money on unpatented medicines.
Not exactly a thorough beta application... name, email, processor, video, RAM...and Gross Annual Income. Whee, another Made For Marketing promotional vehicle disguised as a "game".
Dave Perry, who's directing 2Moons for Acclaim and creating several additional MMO games, wants to open up the door for corporate-sponsored micro transactions.Sounds weird.
"When you buy a virtual item, we're going to do a search to see if any advertiser in real-time is willing to pick up the cost of that item," said Perry. "If you want this sword, it would put up a message and ask if you would like Coca-Cola to buy this item for you."

the issue that this touches on is how they will be able to fund the creation of additional content after the game's release:yeah, how in the world do you expect EA Execs to afford a new corporate jet every year, or pay berthing fees for their private yachts, or buy a new Rolls Royce Phantom convertible every year if they don't charge these fees!
family-friendlythat's code for "safe and sanitized for the under 10 yr old crowd." With pony rides and a baby animals petting zoo in the parking lot. bleh. no thanx.

Do not attempt to adjust the picture,
We are controlling transmission,
We will control the horizontal,
We will control the vertical,
We can change the focus to a soft blur,
Or sharpen it to crystal clarity,
For the next hour sit quietly and we will control all that you see and hear,
You are about to participate in a great adventure,
You are about to experience the awe and mystery which reaches from the inner mind to...
The Outer Limits
