Like all "Golden Age" first person perspective polygon-based software, "The Colony" ROCKS!! Plus, it was written by ONE person [David Smith] -- when artisans *cared* about the software & each game was individually & lovingly handcrafted. PLAY THIS GAME
Play a 3D First Person shooter on a Mac Plus (or better a Mac II)? This is possibly the very first 3D First Person Action shooter with a great plot, a captivating atmosphere that reminds "Space 1999" with a zest of "Aliens". Awesome! Plays best on a B/W 9'' screen, but doesn't support many machines.
[Top DL]: "colony_plus_extras.zip" - The Colony in mono + extras
[2nd DL]: "the-colony-color.sit" - The Colony in color
The color version was sourced from this "Le Grenier du Mac" page. It plays well on a Mac II running SSW 6 including the Mini vMac II emulator.
David Alan Smith has written an entertaining memoir of the game's development at his blog.Compatibility
For people having a problem setting to 1 bit mode - please use an emulator such as Mini vMac.
