UT is 23 years old today

Post by Shrimp » Tue Nov 22, 2022 3:30 pm

UT was released, at least in the US I believe, 23 years ago today, on 22/11/1999.

I remember we had to wait until early January in South Africa for the game to eventually arrive, but we were hooked on the demo which kept us entertained throughout Christmas until then :mrgreen:.

I do remember that ut99 was online, it was on the news on the television in holland also.
It was the first game who was online playable at that time.I was overwelmed when i saw the news, i was back in those days very active with copieing processes with 3,5 inch hd diskettes. :loool:
I had a supplierer who comes strait from the internet, later it became cd and dvd compact disks.

They look like real cd,s or cdroms and dvd,s like it was made for the greater public.
