    Shadow of the beast was made by more or less one person in the eighties. Programmed in AMOS for the Amiga.

    Transport Tycoon was made by a single person (and an artist who did the graphics). A very sophisticated game written in pure assembly. It's one of my all-time favourites. Back in high school I could play it for many hours a day

    Anyone remember the name of the (rather impressive) 3-D game entirely handcoded in assembly by one person?
    p.s. Quake might qualify as the best one-person game considering John Carmack designed most of the game single-handedly.

    Not even. I'm sure there were a lot of programmers
    at id during Quake's Development; including Michael
    Abrash.

    Alex Pajitnov did Tetris by himself. Probably the most
    popular game ever created.

    Aquaria (which just came out) only had one programmer
    on it.

    Didn't Mortal Kombat have just one programmer? Plus 2 artists and a "sound guy" or something. Crap game though.
    Good class architecture is not like a Swiss Army Knife; it should be more like a well balanced throwing knife.

    Mortal Kombat was awesome in its day. Mortal Kombat
    II was even more awesome.

    A billion dollar franchise right there, but I wonder if the
    team that came up with it saw anything other than their
    normal salary. The team should have come up with a crappy
    idea for Midway to compete with SFII and saved Mortal
    Kombat for themselves to exploit.

    I'd say the original ultima game was pretty sweet
    Sometimes I forget what I am doing when I enter a room, actually, quite often.
