Spacewar! games

Group Description

Variants of the original Spacewar! 2D space combat simulator, inspired by the Lensman fiction of E. E. "Doc" Smith, first implemented through the efforts of members of the MIT's Tech Model Railroad Club on a campus PDP-1 in 1962, and among the very first computer games.


Space War 2000

Space War 2000, was in production for the Atari Jaguar. This update of the "first computer game" was unfortunately never finished, and the prototype was eventually distributed by B&C Computervisions.
