Planetfall Marc Blank and Dave Lebling / Infocom 1983

Planetfall is one of Infocom’s most successful games that was updated and re-released as “Solid Gold” edition in 1988. It includes Infocom’s “InvisiClues” hints as an in-game feature, the game engine (“Z machine”) was updated to version 5 (which features a more versatile parser), and most bugs squashed. Similar to the Space Quest series, you start the game as a starship janitor who managed to escape the ship before it was destroy, subsequently landing in a deserted building complex on an alien planet. With the help of your faithful robot companion B-19-7 (aka Floyd), you must discover what happened to the people and solve various problems before time runs out. Planetfall is a great science fiction game that boasts a milestone in computer gaming: creating a believable and lifelike non-player character. Floyd is universally hailed as Infocom’s best NPC, and for good reason. Although he is useful for only three things in the game, Floyd constantly provides you with quips, amusing banter (including many tales of his life as a robot), and hints.
