1. Det Mystiske Rumskib, by Niels Søndergaard (1985)
Duffadash says:

One of the five included text adventure games in the 1985 book "Lav dine egne computereventyr med BASIC" by Niels Søndergaard. The games were meant to be expanded upon by the reader and are thus fairly barebones. One of the games, På Skattejagt i Amazonlandet however, was expanded upon and released as a separate game on floppy by Niels as advertised in the book. No surviving copies are known to exist, as Niels don't have the code any more.

2. Skabet, by Eric Reiss, Maz H. Spork (1985)
Duffadash says:

Developed by the American Eric Reiss and the 14 year old Dane Maz Spork, and released for hte ZX Spectrum in 1985. Maz since continued writing a text adventure engine that has been made freely available on his Github: https://github.com/mazspork/intfic. He also made several interactive fictions works for FN used as corporate training tools in the 90s.
