Running under Unix. You see a user profile with / pathname when he brings up the
menu. I wish they wouldn't have chopped off the credits. The artist is named "Paul"
and he says he worked in Hollywood.
Raster updates are quite slow, it could be a graphics terminal running over a serial
line (Ramtek, Chromerics, Raster Tech, Genesco, AED all possibilities). Guessing 640 x 480 x 8
resolution. Their use of overlays would have been easy with planar frame buffers.
