The first video game about Color: 15 bit was released on October 31, 1996.

A somewhat exotic color mode that wasn't included in later standards on desktop systems, though this is supposedly supported by all VESA (2.0?) compatible PC hardware (all modern hardware).

Unlike the more common 16bit color, 15 bit color has same number of bits set for each color instead of 1 bit more for green.
