Maze is a video game first created for the Imlac PDS-1's at the NASA Ames Research Center. In 1974, Greg Thompson took it to the Dynamic Modeling group at MIT, where it was expanded into a multi-player game with a server running on an ITS mainframe. Next, it was ported to the MagicSix operating system. Another version was written in Logo on the SITS operating system.

In 1977, it was re-written for the Xerox Alto by Jim Guyton. This version was called Maze War and received a lot of attention, which is why the game is mostly known by that name.
