Back when 3D gaming was considered the final frontier these pioneers let gamers have a taste at the potential of the 3rd dimension.

Hard Mode: No Wing Commander, No Star Wars

Pic is "Echelon", explore an alien world, find artifacts, and piece together a map to a space pirate base.

Sundog: Frozen Legacy

Not for the feint of heart. You have to buy parts to repair your ship, fly through a kinda small galaxy that is fully realized with 100% mapped terrain planets you could never fully explore. Space combat, trading, muggings on foot. This is about as close to Star Citizen as the Atari ST ever got.

This was the first game I ever got to play, on the first "real" computer my family ever bought. Packard bell 286 with a VGA card, i wanna say around 1989-ish. The Apple II version is also extremely worth checking out if you're into Apple II at all.

So awesome.

Played the shit out of Damocles when I was young. Had no idea what I was doing, mostly pretended to live in one of the houses.

Kids today will never understand.

Project Nomad was a pretty good trading / exploration game from 1993 that approximately nobody ever heard of. I found an abortive attempt at a let's play with a buncha screenshots here:

Silmarils' Starblade
though it has very limited "3D flight" sections and the game itself is cryptic as fuck
