Anyone know/remember this text adventure?

#1 Post by catventure » Mon Mar 12, 2018 12:22 pm

Anyone else recall a Spectrum quill text adventure (possibly on 80's mag coverdisk) based on the "Chymical Wedding of Christian Rosencreutz" (an allegorical manuscript published in 1616) Does it exist/survive? Is there a snapshot of the game?
All I can remember is that you started off in a deep dark pit and had to somehow climb out by grasping a swinging rope or chain... I haven't seen or heard of this adventure in years - but sure I am not imagining it. Mid-80's, I think..?

That's a bit before my time, but I was always fascinated by 80's text adventures. Haven't heard of this particular one though, sadly.

I seem to recall coming across it at some point, possibly registering it in our database. No guarantees, though!
