A downloadable game

This was an incomplete attempt at creating a game like SimCity, but on an inhospitable planet somewhere out in space.

The idea behind the game is that you've landed on some far-off world and must develop a colony, using the resources of the planet to provide for the colonists. Unfortunately, it didn't turn out anything like it should have.

I'm republishing it here as a warning to myself, and as a curio for anyone interested in the halcyon days of the QuickBasic development scene around the turn of the century.

I originally created this in 1998, but it seems that I didn't actually publish it until 1999, based on what I could find in the WayBack Machine.
