Goku is a Sega Mega LD full-motion video educational software developed by Multimedia Creators Network and published by Pioneer LDC. Released in Japan and the United States in June 1995, it would be the final game published for the Pioneer LaserActive. The game consists of educational videos about both The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and a legendary creature the game has associated with that wonder.

Quotes

Hakubun Ito came up with the idea of “GOKU”, an interactive title to tour seven wonders of the world in high definition CGI, but he was just really into producing CGI simulation of the seven wonders at Magic Box, his own CGI studio in Hollywood, and in fact the images they created were in superb quality back in those days, but I think he spent most of our budget, as HD CGI production was sooo expensive then.

Anyway, he didn’t really have any concrete scenario to go along with the images he had created, so I ended up developing an interactive scenario for “GOKU”, with a help from one of my favorite authors Mr. Hiroshi Aramata, who knows everything about anything historical. I developed a whole scenario based on his telling of the ancient mystery of the seven wonders of the world.[3]
