Where from, Tetris?

Did you ever ask yourself where Tetris comes from? I did, today, and the net answers. Or you can check Wikipedia. Who would have thought that such a simple game would have such a complex history? Deals made and broken, patents lost, influenced by the fall of the Iron Curtain and bought by Microsoft way back before they cared about publicity. Oh, the drama!

If you really REALLY like Tetris, how about joining the Church of Tetris?

I am not going there just yet, although Tetris was the first digital game I saw in my dreams at night. One way to download it today is through the BOWEP - Best of Windows Entertainment Pack. There are other cute, cute games there too, one of my particular favourites is Chip's Challenge. Enjoy.
