March 19, 2019 | By | Add a Comment

This is possibly the most boring post ever, but I wanted to preserve this silliness for posterity. This is the listing for the first commercially published game I ever made. It’s called “Pub Quest”, it’s 100% BASIC, and I wrote it in 1983. The game was published by a Dream Software based in Basingstoke. They […]
