Moses: #1

First Row

Status: No Download, Findability: 2/5

As you can tell from the title, this game was a Christian adventure game where you assume the role of Moses, who must free his people, the Israelites, from slavery in Egypt.

The game was a text adventure, with optional graphics. The game according to Mobygames the game "follows the book of Exodus very closely, and the "hint" feature usually directs you to read a particular passage. The game itself is quite short and relatively easy, with much of the important parts of the story presented as several screens of non-interactive text. Many of the early "puzzles" involve addressing places or people by name. Unintentionally funny at times."

The game was released on the PC, but no other version surfaced. A c64 conversion was penned, and mentioned in a software catalogue.

The game should have been simple to produce, so maybe First Row Software decided to abandon the C64 early on?… The C64 did die out earlier in the US games wise compared to the UK.

A lot more research required for this one, but maybe you know something?
