The Lurking Horror


"The Lurking Horror was a text adventure released in 1987 by Infocom, and was written by Dave Lebling, the co-author of the classic Zork. The game cast the player as a student at G.U.E. Tech (a thinly disguised M.I.T.) who has a twenty page term paper due the next day. Trapped in the Student Center by a horrific blizzard, the term paper eventually lies forgotten as a computer glitch leads you to a terrifying plot to release something beyond evil into the world from the subterranean tunnels of the Institute." - Gamespy
