I reckon the game’s title is going to be the name of a country.

Was there a game called “Cambodia” for the TRS-80? If so, it’s that game!

THANK GOODNESS i was beginning to develop a complex. Peter Olafson gets it.

This early text adventure game had one particularly cruel puzzle that hinged on noticing that one of two nearly identical rooms was gray, while the other was grey.

Close enough, you win!

Robotwar is fascinating and still very playable today. The language is very…FORTH-like.

Ojebction! It’s meant to be pronounced “Robo-Twar”, obviously.
