    Default PC game from my youth

    This has been bugging me for over 8 years, so I hope someone can help me with this.

    One of the very first PC games I ever played was a sort of role-playing game. I played it when I was about 2 years old, so my memories of it are very vague.

    The only thing I remember from it was driving a sort-of moon buggy around buildings in a space colony.

    Here is a Paint file I made of what I think it might look like

    250 meseta will be sent to the person who can tell me this game. Thanks in advance!

    ...uh, yeah...

    anyways, the little guy in the picture looks a lot like the main character from dig-dug; wonder if Namco made it

    No, I don't think it was made by Namco. I only used the Dig-Dug graphic because that was the closest thing to the main character I could find.

    When you say RPG, do you mean you had characters and levels and stuff like that?

    Are you talking about Mines of Titan? That didn't have vehicles, though, if I remember correctly...

    EDIT: There are a few screenshots from it on Google, it's not looking quite like that...
    I have no signature.

    I'm poking around on Mobygames to see if I can help you out... could this be the game (In Search of the Most Amazing Thing)? It looks like it has a moon buggy travelling around a colony (sort of)...

    I think it was a DOS game from the late 80s.

    Space Quest? There were a bunch of those (6?)
    - "Do you have Friends: Season One on VHS?"
    - "These are Nintendo games ma'am"
    - "How about Season Two?"
    - "Sure, here it is, just make sure you shove it in the VCR really hard..."
