Although there are other earlier examples of computer games most consider the first true computer video game or digital game to be Spacewar!. This game was programmed and first played by Steve Russell and released in February 1962. The game ran on the DEC PDP-1 computer and consisted of two spaceships that maneuvered around a star that pulled at the ships with its gravity.
