Little Computer People

By: David Crane
Published By: Activision
Released: 1985

Little Computer People is a bizarre game for its time, if you can even call it a game. Best described as an interactive dollhouse, you interact with a person (or LCP) and their pet. You can feed them, play games, or just watch what they do.

Now seemingly destined to be a footnote as an early precursor to The Sims, the game is still fun on its own merits, not to mention a decent way to waste an afternoon.

One interesting bit of trivia: there are many different versions of this game, depending on which LCP was on the disk.
