Motivation for 3D GalaxProgrammer Paul Blythe described his motivation in creating the game as a preparation of the 3D routines for his later project Federation of Free Traders:
"So I wrote 3D Galax as a test bed of routines in preparation for FOFT. It's taken about a year to write, with a fair bit of time spent looking at how to make the maths involved in the 3D calculations work efficiently." (Source: The One, issue #1, 1988/10).
