habitat lucasfilm games

What could possibly have been the first mulitplayer MMO game, Habitat by Lucasfilm Games was released way back in 1986.  Thanks to Alex Hardy, founder and director of the Museum of Art and Digital Entertainment in Oakland, CA, 1986's "Habitat" may be making a return.

Thanks to the help of a team of individuals from Commodore, AOL, Q-Link, and even the game's original creators Randy Farmer and Chip Morningstar, they are moving toward getting the game up and running again. Though the game is not quite functional yet, they have managed to reverse engineer some of the original Q-Link service code and have a proof of concept in place: a single "Habitat" room with one active player. This doesn't mean that they are nearing launch, merely that they are heading in the right direction.
The one piece of the puzzle they are desperately lacking is the server source code for the Q-Link service. If you, or someone you know has any information, the museum would love to hear from you.
