  1. The citation here is a review of “The Lost Treasures of Infocom” published in Strategy Plus magazine. I cannot remember the issue but it would have been published about 1993.

    A version of Adventure was being run under the name “HOBBIT” on IBM System/370 mainframes running MVS in some commercial installations in the UK in 1981.
