Synopsis

Plot

Explore a derelict alien ship, dripping with gore and nastiness from incidents long past, while gathering supplies and preparing the ship's lone remaining shuttle for escape.

Notes

This game was published by the Programmer's Guild; it bears some stylistic resemblance to the publisher's The Domes of Kilgari by Alex Kreis, with a similar alien creature appearing, but no author is credited in-game.

In an interview with Gaming After 40, label owner Bob Liddil mentioned that royalty checks were sent to 'The Dog Brothers', Spud Mutt and Biff Mutt; two Texas-based authors who never revealed their true names.

Jason Dyer of Renga in Blue suspects that Spud Mutt and Biff Butt may well have been Robert Arnstein and Richard Arnstein.

After initially having advertising for the game refused by 80 Microcomputing magazine, Bob was forced to tag the game as 'Rated R'.

In 1983 the Programmer's Guild created a Dragon version for the UK market, but it was never released. This version eventually saw the light of day in 2021.
