Dark Forest is one of the earliest computer strategy games in history, having been released in 1981 by Sirius Software. Sirius Software is a totally forgotten developer that churned dozens of games every year between 1981 and 1983, almost all of them action games - Dark Forest is there only strategy game.
For my blog, I decided to play this game in solo, and then proposed on my blog to play it in multiplayer. I found 5 daring adventuring willing to continue forth (or backward?) into 1981 gaming. It turns out that at least two of them (Dayyālu and Morpheus Kitami) and possibly more are also on the 'Dex, so I can just as well create a thread here in addition to the one on my blog.
I will explain the game as we go along, we are only at the beginning of turn 2 at the moment.
