Thank you thank you thank you for the link. I have been looking for these games for years. I was 13 when I found them. The first one that I remember was “The Lost Crown of Queen Anne.” It was included on Big Blue #(??), which was a monthly subscription that you would receive each month and it had 3 or 4 games (approx) and it really was a blue disc, though it was a 3.5" floppy which is the smaller of the 2 disks available at the time. I quickly noticed that the filenames of the files that make up the game, is a list of the author’s name, address, and phone number as well some copywrite information. So I called his house (he must have known somebody would do that if they ever paid 3 seconds of attention to the filenames) and talked to his wife, who sent me a list of the games that he had at that time. I managed to scrounge a few more over the years, but lost them all when I joined the Army. The only thing about them that I remembered was the name of the programmer, Robert Wayne Atkins. As soon as I bought a computer after the Army I started searching for these games simply for the nostalgic value. I had many different types of games at that time, but spent more time playing these than anything else (and no, not because they are slower and take longer to play, but because I really enjoyed them).
So again, thank you for posting that link. It’s frustrating because the link to this page was 4 search result pages deep and I was about to give up. Not even his personal pages are any help in finding these.
