Every once and a while, I receive emails from people looking for a certain game, electronic toy, or computer from their distant past. I then pass it on to intrepid VC&G readers to crack the case.
I have been trying to remember the name of a C64 (possibly C128) text adventure game that I played in 1989 or 1990. I don't remember the game containing any visuals, but there might have been… Regardless, here's what I remember, and it's not much, of the game content:
You are a detective (I believe) and are at a seaside or lakeside resort during it's off-season time. I remember that I could "see" an abandoned row boat and closed/locked market along the water.
That's all I vividly remember. Not so clear is the possibility of other shut or closed down stores and buildings in the vicinity of where the game starts the player.
Any help at all in finding the title of this game from my vague memory would be MUCH appreciated!
