Bob Withers (www.ruffboy.com) has put up for free download six games he
co-authored with Steve O'Dea under the company name Mark Data in the
80's. Mr. Withers is also notable for an early Adventure port to
MS-DOS. The games are graphical (CGA) IF.

The games, along with several more recent programs, are available at
http://www.ruffboy.com/download.htm. The links all say "source", but
they also contain the executables. There are also maps, walkthroughs
and cover-art.

The games are Shenanigans, Sea Search, Calixto Island, The Black
Sanctum, Trekboer and The Vortex Factor.

I've just found this site so I'm going to start playing (when these
games were being released I was still having dilemmas with Cookie
Monster being a *good* monster). One note is that "QUIT" requires a
reboot (or an "End Task" in Windows) so beware.
