Part of me wants to say it was bundled as a demo with Irix 4.0.5 because I remember something damn similar.

I remember it well, it's an open-inventor demo and the source code is on github along with a bunch of others:

Project:
Temporarily lost at sea...
Plan:
World domination! Or something...

One of my old compositor friends worked at Tippet Studios on Starship Troopers. Was right there in the magic.

As a teenager back in the day I thought Tippet Studios was as magical a workplace as any animator could ever wish to work.
