Nomad (GameTek / Papyrus / Intense!, 1993)

Post by colinb »

I've reverse engineered the majority of the data files in the space adventure / exploration game Nomad, published in 1993/1994 by GameTek. It's all published here:

There's also a link to the GitHub repo for a utility that I wrote to browse the graphics and sounds from the game: ... e-explorer

If anyone is interested in contributing, it would be great to get some information about the format of the 3D models (which are packed as .BIN files in TEST.DAT). I haven't done any work with those.
