Description

I wrote The Colony after a few failed attempts at developing other games before it. I had been interested in the idea of virtual environments for some time, and was very interested in using the computer as a vehicle to build and explore these worlds. My first attempts at this were on an Apple II using simple pictures where you could move through the world by loading a new image based upon the user's decisions. I realized pretty quickly that this approach would simply not scale very well if only due to the limitations of space on a floppy disk. In a way, I turned to 3D as a compression technology - I could fit a (relatively speaking) huge world onto a single floppy disk. (Dave Alan Smith, developer)
