Several weeks ago, I was wandering around Goodwill and came across a game I had never seen for a device I never heard of. Only later after having done some searching on the internet did I learn it was for Sony’s first attempt at creating an electronic book reader back in the late 80s and early-90s called the Sony Data Discman.
I’ve searched and searched and found nothing on this text-based adventure game for the Sony Data Discman. All I know is that the Data Discman released several reference and literature books, nothing is ever mentioned about a text-based game. I’m convinced no one has heard of it. I’ve thought about contacting the developers.
The game is titled Adventure 101: Intro to Tourist, Traps, Dwarfs, and Chivalry. It was published in 1991 by Tsunami Media, Inc in conjunction with Sony Electronic Publishing… I believe it is remake of Colossal Cave Adventure or Adventure
MobyGames - Tsunami Media, Inc.
Tsunami Media, Inc started off making adventure games then moving on to interactive movies… I can find nothing on Tsunami Media, Inc ever releasing an interactive e-book for the Sony Data Discman.
I’m very curious to know more if anyone has any information or point in the right direction, I’d appreciate it. To be honest, I am thinking of putting this up for sale-- I just don’t know how rare or if it worth anything besides the $1.49 that it cost me.
Note: The Data Discman used 8cm CD-ROMs. It’s capable of playing from a computer.
