Thirty years ago, Thanksgiving week of 1992, I was gifted a hand-me-down IBM 5150 computer.
With that beige box and a telephone modem I mastered the MS DOS command line and local dial-up bulletin board systems (BBSs).
Where did the years go? I suppose partly to coding and programming.
This upcoming holiday weekend, why not reminisce of 80s/90s dial-up and terminal gaming with me?
I invite you to join me and my close friends to explore a free multi-player online game of space exploration.
I started coding this game in 2017 as a POC, then continued refining it over the last five years.
Connect using a web browser, then explore and interact with other players and objects using the command line.
It was inspired by videogames found on 80s/90s computer bulletin board systems (BBSs) like Tradewars 2002 and LOTRD.
This short-duration popup, the “2022 Thanksgiving Scramble,” runs Wed afternoon thru Sun night.
See https://series-v.com to join the game or to learn more.
But more importantly, make time to enjoy the Thanksgiving season with your friends and family.
