The Lurking Horror

Lurking Horror, The - Cover art

Ever since you arrived at G.U.E. Tech, you’ve heard stories about the creepy old campus basements and storage rooms, some so ancient that they contain only rotting piles of unidentifiable junk. Until now, you’ve never ventured lower than the ground floors of the monolithic classroom and dorm buildings, avoiding the warren of tunnels that connect them. But tonight, something draws you down into the mysterious depths of the institute.

Re-released as part of Infocom’s Mystery Collection.
