The Habitat - Tech Transfer
« on: December 12, 2015, 11:15:20 AM »
Just found this cool piece of gaming history.
Lucas Art's Habitat was a very early attempt at online community/rpg, a bit like Sierra's ImagiNation Network.

In 1989 Lucas Arts licensed the technology to Fujitsu, and today I found a document used for this technology transfer.
It makes a very cool read.
