Exscape.com gaat terug naar 1992 met een artikel over Wolfenstein 3D. Nostalgie!
The origins of Wolfenstein 3D are interesting, especially in light of the fact that many of the original team members at id Software had worked previously for companies like Softdisk that made software primarily for the Apple II. After all, before the PC really caught on as a home machine, the handful of computer users in the world had Apples. Many of the truly classic computer games actually began on the Apple, including one title called "Castle Wolfenstein," a maze game where you had to evade Nazi guards and stormtroopers in a mazelike castle while searching for items (The truly curious can try the game on one of the several Apple emulators available on the web). id basically took the name, theme, and basic ideas and turned a two dimensional adventure into a virtual reality simulator where you played the role of BJ Blazkowicz, a POW trapped in a Nazi castle. Your goal: to escape by any means possible using only your wits and any ammunition and weapons you could find along the way. The gimmick: you would see everything through BJ's eyes and maneuver through a 3D castle loaded with secrets, treasure, and enemies.
