I guess I'm a retro-grouch to really love these old video games like Hammurabi. I didn't realize it dates to 1968!
It' based on The Sumerian Game from 1964!
and a modern remake with beautiful hand-drawn graphics from LabLabLab at Concordia University
@notimetoplay Yes, would love to see it if you feel like sharing, even just a screenshot! I think lots of these games were coded in BASIC since a version of that came on home computers at that time like Commodore-64, and I think games like this spread through the type-in magazines and books from that time
David Ahl's BASIC computer games with dozens of type-in games is hugely inspirational to me!
Love the illustrations in these as well! Here's More BASIC computer games https://archive.org/details/More_BASIC_Computer_Games_1980_Creative_Computing/page/n15/mode/2up
@notimetoplay thanks for these resources! looking forward to reading your book and playing more of your games!
