Because it is a sierra game... it is abandonware... it is DOS... it is a game... is that enough reasons?

But it's not really a game. It's an online network which is used to host games.

INN is a game, it connects to a network, about 50% of the games you can play by yourself online... that qualifies as a game, thats like saying that Modern Warfare isnt a game? but it is...

INN IS the network!!! ImagiNation NETWORK. The "games" that you play are Yserbius, Boogers, Red Baron, etc.

I think that perhaps because of the friendly-looking, graphics-heavy, and incredibly detailed interface, you are convinced that the network itself is a game. And also because unlike most online networks nowadays, this one is contained within software stored on your computer.

The original network is completely nonfunctional. The server emulator might be added to the Programs page, if you can prove there are sufficient logical reasons for its addition there.

You completely misunderstand. We're not fighting, just posting our opinions.

its not an emulator, it runs via dosbox and uses the original software, all they did was change the internet file in INN to run through an IP...
