So this is a joke, of course, but I do love Shark Aquarium. The details are so scant, and the sharks are basically just grey lines, but it still has more of a sense of place than it’s probably meant to.

From Here to Eternity – a brand new BBS-game developed by Shooter Jennings (son of country legend Waylon Jennings) with ANSI-graphics by Misfit/Blocktronics. It lasts for 30 days, or until someone finishes the game. You can win 1 bitcoin (apx 240 US dollars).

Play the game on Bit Sunrise BBS (web, telnet) and read a lengthy interview at Break into Chat (the #1 place for BBS-games) where these images are also from.
