Boy howdy. I get a major kick out of talking about making DOS games. It’s a great opportunity to amuse myself. Which, as it turns out, I like to do.
“I did it just to make Richard Stallman’s [founder of the GNU Project] head explode,” laughs Lunduke. “A closed-source game about building Linux… running on DOS? I don’t think something like that can exist in our universe at the same time as Stallman. I’m sure, at the very least, a temporal rift opened up somewhere.”
In case anyone is curious… yes. I reached out to Stallman — mostly just to make sure he didn’t think I actually wanted his head to explode.
His response was, in essence, a very polite no comment. :)
