Wow the graphics in this are pretty damn good considering oh wait nevermind...

I used this a few times. It sucked and made my 300 baud connection to QLink even slower

Was it full of furries?

No that was the good old days when furries were too ashamed to openly display their perverted hobby.

Proof of furry.

Prepare the fire.

I wanted this so bad, I thought it was gonna change the world. I'm kinda glad it sucked.

20 years later and 3-D worlds still slow my computer to a halt, but at least SL is free.

Oh wow, as if I needed another reason to hate Lucasfilm, apparently they also invented mmorpurgers.

I like how they make it seem all pleasant, but in reality it'd be like being stuck in a YouTube comments page. "You suck LULZ"

An excellent article on this game, and a fascinating read for anyone interested in MMO gaming in general: (EARLY GRIEFING!)

Thx for the link.. I remember when it first came out, and the usual over-optimistic technophiles were predicting in-game cults and religions. Not for another 15 years!

There's only so much you could do at 300 baud, where data transfer was a great deal slower than reading speed.

Only one year away from Purple Tentacle and Dr. Ed.

It looks like it uses the same engine as the C64 game Labyrinth.

A sort of precursor to the Sims of sort. Never even heard of it before. Nice find.

Looks mind-numbingly boring and uneventful. Where is the flash version of this I can play for free?

I played a later 1988 version called Club Caribe. It was expensive and not very fun because of the limitations of the hardware.

I had tried it because Lucasfilm Games had produced some of my favorite titles; Rescue on Fractalus, The Eidolon, Koronis Rift, Maniac Mansion, these were all awesome, ground-breaking games.

I guess Habitat was just ahead of its time and the available technology.

Quick, someone get Prokfy Neva on this, her opinion is paramount!

Just imagine a 6 page screed on why Second Life did it first, Linden Labs doesn't take her seriously, and anyone who says otherwise is an emotional terrorist.
