like a lot of nerds who got access to a DOS machine some time in the 90s and started poking around looking for something, anything of interest before being on the internet all the time was really an option, i wrote some qbasic games.
qbasic trader was going to be my magnum opus. a supremely unoriginal clone of _taipan_, which i'd first played on the apple II.
it's a pretty bad game, but i'm still kind of proud of the pixel art.
I could tell it was DOS from the shape of the exclamation mark (!) in the font being used.
It's been 15 years I touched DOS (via Windows, at school), but I still recognise its font 😁
on the other hand, it ran on most of the computers i could get my hands on for like a decade, and i spent approximately none of those years haunted by visions of how software was murdering the world, so i guess it might have one or two things to recommend it over my recent time with better operating systems.
