Text Adventure For Commodore, Atari, Apple, IBM

Epyx has introduced a new text adventure game based on Isaac Asimov's science fiction detective novel, Robots of Dawn. The game is available in versions for the Commodore 64, Atari, Apple, and IBM PC and PCjr computers.

In Robots of Dawn, you play the detective "Lije" Bailey as you investigate the murder of Dr. Fastolfe, the father of positronic humaniform robot design. You question an array of suspects from far-flung cultures to determine who committed the murder. Even your robotic friend, R. Daneel, is under suspicion. Visit parts of the city uncovering clues, question suspects, and try to find anyone with a motive.

Circumstances vary each time you play the game, and you can engage in conversations with the game's characters.

The retail price is expected to be in the $29–$35 range for the different computers.
