Crack dot Com was a computer game development company co-founded by ex-id Software programmer Dave Taylor, and Jonathan Clark.
The company released only one game, Abuse, an MS-DOS scrolling platform shooter which sold over 80,000 copies worldwide. Based on a public source code release, Abuse was ported to a wide variety of platforms including Microsoft Windows, MacOS, AIX, SGI Irix, Amiga/AmigaOS, and Linux.
Prior to the company's closing in October 1998, they were working on Golgotha, a hybrid of first-person shooter and real-time strategy. The game was never finished and Crack dot com made the source and data for Golgotha (as also Abuse) public domain.
