- Space Empire Elite
Space Empire Elite or SEE is a multi-player
bulletin board systemstrategy game for Atari STBBSes. In Space Empire Elite, players rule an empire which they expand by purchasing planets or conquering other empires. Players are responsible for maintenance of their military and planets as well as feeding the population and the army. The goal is to become the largest, most powerful empire and remain so for as long as possible.
One of SEE's key features is that it can be setup for "intergalactic," or inter-BBS, play. In this mode, players on a BBS are part of the same "galaxy" and work more as a team, trying to destroy other galaxies.
Jon Radoffis the original author of SEE. [Jason McMaster, GigaGamez (March 20, 2007), "Making Games Viral for Fun and Profit," http://gigagamez.com/2007/03/20/making-games-viral-for-fun-and-profit/] According to the documentation files for SEE v11.34, later authors who maintained or contributed to SEE include Jurgen van den Handel, Steven P. Reed, Carlis Darby, David Pence, Doc Wynne, David Jones, and Dick Pederson.
SEE was the inspiration for several other BBS door games, including
