    I used to play a game on my Apple //e and simply can not remember the name or publisher. Hopefully a description of it will get some minds working and maybe someone will remember it.
    As the game starts up you see a door with a window in it. Suddenly a hand breaks through the glass and grabs the door handle. This is the intro scene. Once the game is running I believe you are a private detective or something and you are in the office. The game is obviously graphical and commands such as look, n, s, e, w, get, are used to interact. There is a window in the office and a shadow moves by but it's only the window washer. There is a phone, a note from the secretary, a water cooler. When you leave the building if the correct steps were not taken and man comes up with a gun and shoots you. I can remember all these details but not the name. I remember it being similar to the game play in "The Coveted Mirror," but the setting is modern day city. Any old school Apple gamers out there that remember this game?

    It actually wasn't but I have updated the wiki page with the game. It is called "Borrowed Time," from Activision. I just found it before I checked this post. I had to browse the Apple ftp archives at asimov.net to find it. Thanks for the input!
