Submission + - The first 3D game on the PC (before Carmack)? (

An anonymous reader writes: Who wrote the first 3D game for the PC? id Software takes credit for it, but this guy apparently published a more modern-looking 3D game one year before Carmack. The google video of Alpha Waves shows a game that was surprisingly advanced compared to other early 3D games like Elite or id's Hovertank 3D.

Submission + - Women 'advertise' fertility
