Wouldn't you love to be part of the most important discovery in the history of the computer?

Amazing Software Allows You To Actually Lure Human-Like Beings Out of Your Computer!

Admit it. Haven't you ever wondered - even just for a second - what really goes on inside your computer? If so, then an important recently-announced research discovery will be of special interest to you!

Startling Discovery
After years of speculation and months of intensive work, the Activision Little Computer People Research Group (ALCPRG) has successfully discovered and actually drawn out dozens of small, living creatures who have been trapped in the confines of standard, store-bought computers- just like yours.

How Were They Discovered?
The answer is fascinating. The discovery itself took dozens of researchers, hundreds of thousands of dollars, the most technically advanced equipment and years of scientific speculation and hard work.
The precise process is based on an incredible, state-of-the-art piece of software. It's a unique, fully-equipped 2 story "house-on-a-disk." When loaded into a computer, it will not only draw out one of the Little Computer People but will actually become the Person's permanent residence.

And Now, An Inexpensive Commercial Version of the Actual Laboratory Design is Available For Your Use.
Yes, you yourself can own your very own 2 1/2 story house-on-a-disk. And that means you can soon meet a Little Computer Person residing inside your computer. Just look at some of the things you and your new-found friend can do.

Here's What Your Little Computer Person Does

  • Moves right into his new house. Lives in and utilizes all rooms.
  • Types up a storm. Loves to rattle off messages. And, once you introduce yourself, your Little Computer Person will address you by name!
  • Most are neat and clean - they brush their teeth, take showers and more.
  • Quite a chef. He loves to cook and, of course, sample his own wares
  • Such a gamester, loved nothing better than a good game of cards.
  • All Little Computer People are accomplished pianists.
  • Watch out Travolta - your Little Computer Person dances and does aerobics regularly.

Here's What You Can Do:

  • Be a gift-giver. Leaving presents for your Little Computer People is a great feeling
  • It's called PPR - positive personality reinforcement (better known as "petting"), and it's a super way acknowledge your Little Computer Person's importance to you.
  • Provide the basics- food and water. It's a real responsibility.
  • Learn your LCP's name! We've discovered many LCP's with many different names.
  • Just watch and observe. There's so much we have to learn about these people.

Don't Delay
Doesn't the whole concept of a Little Computer Person seem fascinating? Wouldn't you love to join in on the discovery and lure the LCP out of your computer? If your answer is yes, then be sure and take advantage of this offer.

The Activision Little Computer People Discovery Kit. Look At All You Get!
