Transland is a game made by Origin Systems employees to help prepare them for making 3D games. While certainly playable, it's very rough around the edges (to the point of having its intro told entirely in storyboards) and any plans to expand the game further were shelved due to other projects taking up time. As such, the game was quietly posted on the company's website.

Hooo boy, this thing is bigger than it looks.
Booting a.exe without command line parameters will show the player a massive map editor.
The player can see the map info simply by pressing I or by clicking on "Map Info" from the main editor screen.
