Volume 3, Number 2, Spring 1985

Novel Games

First there was Ray Bradbury’s novel: Fahrenheit 451, which won the 1984 Prometheus Hall of Fame award.

Now there’s also a Fahrenheit 451 computer game, produced by Trillium Corporation in collaboration with Bradbury.

"Only Trillium gives you programs like Fahrenheit 451, Ray Bradbury’s timeless masterpiece about one man’s courage to defy a book-burning and repressive state," says the Trillium ad, which is appearing in both science fiction and computer magazines. Trillium combines, they also say, a line of classic fiction with state-of-the art features—like full-color graphics, advanced text parsers, and the intense, realistic game play of multi-disk programs.

Other classic novels developed into computerized science fiction adventure role-playing games include Robert Heinlein's Starman Jones, Arthur Clarke’s Rendezvous with Rama, Michael Crichton’s Amazon, Alan Dean Foster's Shadowkeep, and Dragonworld, a previous Prometheus Award nominee written by Byron Preiss, Michael Reaves and Joseph Zucker.

Trillium products can be ordered through many local computer stores and science fiction bookstores. Who would like to be the first LFS member to review a computer game?
