Scott Adams created many games in a short time, but the Count is one of the most famous.

I played this game only recently, after experiencing more modern games, but I love its charm and open exploration. I feel like in the 70's, when it came out, and people only had a few games, it's unfairness and picky parser would actually be a bonus, adding many hours to gameplay as you try to figure out something to type.

But even for more modern players looking for a quick fix, it's enjoyable. The ultra-minimalism works really well, here, as you are captured and wake up the next day with little explanation beyond your own dark imagination.

A real keeper. Beating it on your own could take quite a while, though.
