You know, I think I did, but it kept crashing so I just finally gave up.bojac6 said:I think the real question is, did you ever get to play The 11th Hour after all that? I know it was eventually released on Mac.Susan Arendt said:Alas, no, I had to abandon it when I moved to North Carolina. I wouldn't mind picking one up, along with Twisted, Gex (loved that game), Killing Time, and The Horde.msakey said:Hilarious article, Susan. I was in college at the time of the 3DO, and working at an EB. That was the Year of the Failed Consoles - Atari Jaguar, Philips... what was it called? CDS? 3DI?
My personal 3DO memory is of the day I was minding my business at work an an enraged mother came in to complain about Night Trap. As if I'd made the game. I think she honestly believed that the people who worked retail software made games.
Do you still have your 3DO? You should hook that bad boy up and kill some ducks.

By the way, for those who are curious, way back when, if you worked in publishing, you worked on a Mac, period, the end. PCs were simply unheard of in that industry. Photoshop, Quark, Pagemaker, everything you needed to put a publication together was originally designed for Macs. Of course, this is also back in the days of Jazz drives and actual paste-up, too. It was a technological marvel when we could start backing up issues by burning CDs.
