Infocom had a great game called Suspended, published in the '80s, which featured this idea. You played a human aboard a space station that was run by robots. You were to be awoken from suspended animation to handle the worst emergencies. You commanded six robots, each with different functions. For example, one had superior sound sensors. There was one called Waldo (Heinlein alert) that had superior manipulators. The puzzles were ingenious and diabolically difficult. One of the best adventure games of all time, in my opinion, despite its lack of graphics.
Anachronox and Omikron are the ones come to my mind.In DOTT also you control 3 different characters.And I-jet had very interesting premises about online co-op puzzle solving.
Good points!
