I've been going through my collection of BBS download files from the late 80s. Many games/apps need Win 3.x to run, so I've seen the standard "This Program requires Microsoft Windows." message or minor variants a number of times.

Then I ran across this one. Not only is it colorful and informative, but it animates into place.


David van der Spoel's Deap Sea Windows 3.x game when run in DOS.


I don't know much about the game, but that's a cool programming trick.
