MS-DOS poised to make a major come-back in gaming!! (Well... sort of.)

From indie dev Bryan Lundyke:

I present to you the most ridiculous technology story of the year:

Linux Tycoon -- the popular game where players simulate building their own version of Linux -- has been ported to DOS.

Yes.  That DOS.  MS-DOS.  The one that nobody has used in the last 20 years.

This is not a joke.

Full story, including screenshots and a most triumphant video where Linux and MS-DOS fall in love:

The complete insanity of porting any game to DOS in the year 2013 aside... there is one great benefit.  People can now play the game on Android, iOS, OS/2, Haiku-OS, Maemo, FreeBSD and a bunch of other platform through the power of DOS emulation.  Nifty right?

Don't forget you can also keep up to date by adding the Indie Game News Google+ page to your circles.
