I’d love details on this! This sounds vaguely like a game I played on a Harris Minicomputer in the late 80’s.

> Out of curiosity, does anyone know anything about this publisher? They apparently existed in the late 70’s and early 80’s. They were apparently located in Beaverton, Oregon in the same business park, on Nimbus, where Norvac Electronics was. They obviously published some very strange computer books, including what looks to be a teen romance. I find myself with an embarrassingly nice little collection of the books, that my Dad apparently had. Considering I think he touched a computer twice in his life, they’re something of a mystery.
