Notes: This was a port of the unfinished Sinclair QL port of Bandersnatch, the unfinished Spectrum "MegaGame" Imagine Software was working on when it went bust in 1984. Sinclair Research was going to release the QL version, but apparently it fell through at the last minute and it appeared as Psygnosis' first ST game instead. Apparently, one could tell it was intended for the QL from the color palette (red/green/white/black) and the fact that it only used the middle 512 pixels of the screen (at least in the version shown at the 1985 PCW Show).


Written 1982, 84, 86 by Inrac Corporation.
Notes: Not an adventure, really.

Comments: As Eliza was an early computer program that simulates artificial intelligence, so Racter is a program that simulates artificial insanity [...] A program that interviews you, tells you stories and anecdotes, etc.
