The Electronic Labyrinth


Infocom produces interactive fictions in four subject areas: Mystery, Fantasy, Science Fiction, and Tales of Adventure. Titles include: Witness, Suspect, Deadline, Wishbringer, Enchanter, Zork I, II, III, Sorcerer, Spellbreaker, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Planetfall, A Mind Forever Voyaging, Starcross, Suspended, SeaStalker, Cutthroats, Infidel.

Many of these are simple games. The Zork titles began as clones of the original interactive text Adventure, but have gradually lost their literary focus and gained graphical sophistication. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is a text-only software version of the popular comedic novel. It retains much of the spirit of its predecessor, illustrating that adaptations of books can make for good software.
