Emulated Games (DEC PDP-1)
The DEC PDP-1, a small mainframe computer for real-time applications introduced in 1959 by the Digital Equipment Corporation, was one of the first commercially available machines to come with a visual display. In 1961, one of the first production models was donated by DEC to M.I.T., which became the first digital computer ever to run a video game. A fully restored PDP-1 is on display at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California (USA).

In 2016, I did my very own game for the DEC PDP-1, a simulation of the very first coin-operated video game, “Computer Space” by Nolan Bushnell and Ted Dabney (1971). Computer Space was inspired by Spacewar! on a PDP computer (hence the name of my game), but features a time limited gaming experience for a single player.

A “Spacewar-for-one” as a tribute to the classic line of heritage of space shooter video games, combining elements of Spacewar!, Computer Space, and Asteroids.
Think of it as a “Spacewar trainer” or a Spacewar-for-one.
Another new old-school game, similiar to “Outer Orbit”, but here, instead of the central star, it's the asteroids that excert their individual gravity field on the spaceship. Can you navigate the asteroid field and out-compete the flying saucers?
