You were asked – TMP link

22% said "inspired by the what?"
5% said "yes, I've played a game based on Time Tunnel"

Ah, but they are a very discerning 5%

Now, a Time Bandits game, that would be a corker…

That's a relief. I'd have worried if it had gotten as high as 10%.

And the next set of questions are – "Have you ever gamed a scenario inspired by a Land of the Giants / Lost in Space / Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea.

Of course, the answer to that/those questions, if you're an old fart like myself, would have been a resounding yes. Oh, the '70's…

I used to love those shows. Think what they could do with those with todays technology. The Netflix, Lost In Space is great.

Time Tunnel, pondered it. Land of the Giants, been there, ran that. "It's an arch on one side and a mouse hole on the other."

It's easy to game "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea".
Have the Seaview rock back and forth, while the crew pretends to be flung against the walls … err, bulkheads.
1. Admiral Nelson gets possessed.
2. Commander Crane gets possessed.
3. Seaman Kowalski gets possessed.

Does anyone make the robots from Lost in Space, or Forbidden Planet in 28mm?

"Think what they could do with those with today's technology."

Think what you could have done with them then, if they'd hired a script-writer. Classic Trek, Outer Limits and Twilight Zone had no better tech. Possible I was too old.
