So last night’s voyage down the Wikipedia rabbit hole brought me to “Questprobe featuring the Hulk”, a Scott Adams text adventure game from 1984. I’d forgotten this existed, but just reading the title brought back a whole load of memories. I don’t remember it being a great game, like most text adventures back then the puzzles did not always make sense. The limited graphics were good for the time though. #c64 #retrocomputing
This is probably old news for most of you #retrocomputing nerds, but I've been enjoying this book about 80s home computers in the UK. I bought the hardback, and it's fun to dip into and read a chapter every now and again. I think it's also available as a free PDF. https://wireframe.raspberrypi.com/books/computers-that-made-britain
