Internet Archive lets you play one of the earliest computer games Space War! emulated in JavaScript in the browser.

This entry covers the historical context of Space War!, and instructions for working with our in-browser emulator. The system doesn’t require installed plugins (although a more powerful machine and recent browser version is suggested).

The JSMESS emulator (a conversion of the larger MESS project) also contains a real-time portrayal of the lights and switches of a Digital PDP-1, as well as links to documentation and manuals for this $800,000 (2014 dollars) minicomputer.

"If another player is attempting to adversely change the past, players will sometimes keep racing back to out-undo each other. Anything that must travel back in time in order to maintain the current state of causality is denoted to the player, which helps manage paradoxes."PermalinkCommentsvideo videogame time-travel strategy rts game
