The Ultima RPG pen paper project would
have used simplified versions of the algorithms used for combat and spell

the computer series and had a projected price of $30. A lot of work was done on
the project, but

Another funny thing about that little Ultima article was the talk
about Ultima V shipping in September. Heh. At Applefest 87 the big
posters said Arriving October 31st: Ultima V: Warriors of Destiny.
The game didnt ship until March 31, 1987.
To tell you the truth, I was not so impressed last year. The software

Sigh. OK everyone, back to your 3D shooters and RTS eye candy...
I went for all of an hour. If you're into console games, specifically the 2600, its a blast. Lots more custom 2600 games (I love how perfectly they reproduce the style of the original game's artwork and manuals, etc.) A surprising amount of material (hardware, software and manuals) for creating

Howard Scott Warshaw was there (wrote Yar's Revenge, Raiders of the Lost
Ark, and E.T. I think) Nice to see a classic developer trek all the way
over from CA.
He was cool. I bought a copy of Once Upon Atari from him and he autographed
it for me.

Well it certainly couldn't hurt to have as many signatures as possible.
However, based on the wording of the press release, it's unlikely to be an
emotional decision, and I'm guessing we won't get around 500,000 +
signatures to guarantee profit. The decision will likely be based on the
