Fact for the day: 16-07-2012

In 1988 Electronic Arts became the first major publisher to release an ‘online’ multiplayer game. Dan Bunten‘s Modem Wars allowed two players to sit at their own computer and play over a telephone line.

While games such as Doom, Marathon, Quake, Duke Nukem 3D and GoldenEye 007 may have defined the first-person shooter genre, the first documented ‘first person shooter 3D multiplayer networked game’ was called Spasim (space + simulation = Spasim). It appeared in 1974 and could be played by up to 32 people.

It is believed that Subash Ghai’s film Taal was the first Bollywood movie to be widely promoted on the internet.

The first internet worm was created by Robert Morris, Jr, and attacked more than 6,000 internet hosts.
