Sea Dragon Roots

March 10, 11

I’m sure you find that some of the early games you played never really leave your mind. 

Sea Dragon is like that for me.

At the time it might have seemed frivolous, but it wasn’t.  It was new and different and exciting.  It did something magical on the screen in black and white blocks that you could talk to by name. 

It was one of the first games we tried to hack to learn to make it our own.  How were they making it happen?  We wanted to try and know.  What might have seemed pretty frivolous can be important to you years forward.


It can be important to help a piece of toast make it to breakfast.

You’ll find ways to use it all.

Check out this cool profile on Sea Quest!

John Szczepaniak put this together over on Hardcore Gaming 101.

Pretty amazing collection of screenshots that must have been hard to find.  It was fun to remember that time and the people that made it so memorable.

Looking at this image actually brought back another memory — of trying to build games early on with my friends.  We “hacked” (using the term very loosely) a game called Sea Dragon.

Should still be hacking it up!
Guess I am in a different way …
