I, Robot


Welcome to the new home page for the I, Robot emulator! I've finally gotten around to updating this thing, and with some help have dumped VRML game models.

I, Robot was a milestone in video game history -- it was the first video game to rasterize 3-D polygons in real-time.  Not the wire-frame models mind you, but real solid 3D objects. The game is a testifies to the hardware and software ingenuity present at Atari in the early 80's. It will always stand as one of my all time favorite games.

This is my first and so far only emulator.  It was also my first attempt at collaborating over the internet. It has been a long, enjoyable but often frustrating road. I have am a bit older and a bit wiser as a result of this emulator. I wish I had more time to develop these things, but my new job is keeping me quite busy. I hope you can all enjoy what I have contributed though.

My eternal thanks goes out to Dave Theurer, Dave Sherman, and all the other folks at Atari who made this game a reality.

If any of you out there have any stories about I, Robot, knowledge of prototypes or any other information relating to the development of this game, feel free to drop me a line.
