Exploring the Games of the PLATO Computer System
I decided to take an in-depth look at the games on the enigmatic and amazing PLATO computer system, developed in the 60s and enhanced/expanded during the 70s and 80s. I've heard a lot about the system and was happy to take it for a spin, looking at rare games like spasim. It's pretty obvious to me that many of our favorite games were inspired by these PLATO titles (Elite, Battlezone, Star Control!), but take a look and let me know what you think!
