The first video game about Dark space was released in 1977.

Atari, Domark and LucasArts has published most of these games

This is in contrast to the "norm" where space is depicted like it's seen in those computer enhanced pictures where nebulae normally invisible to human eye are brought to visible light range (and for some reason games tend to have these nebulae everywhere).
