According to the included documentation, Transland has an interesting backstory of how it came to exist, created by members of ORIGIN Systems back in the mid 90's. From the included readme file: "Untried, untested, and never finished, Transland was never intended for public consumption. In fact, Transland is the result of an exercise by some creative folks here at ORIGIN who were learning about the ins and outs of 3-D games." How it eventually DID get released, I'm not sure, but it's definitely an interesting short game / tech demo. You wander around in one of four different areas and perform tasks as you marvel at the mid-90's era 3D graphics, generated without the aid of a 3D accelerator. Not only the environments themselves but also the objects (people, for example) are rendered in 3D (not sprites). Definitely fun to play around with for awhile but it's a bit disappointing that it was never intended to be a full game! (Press Alt-H to view the help screen.)
