Techtite (2000)
One of the first of the best thriller games, The Lurking Horror should be in the collection of any fan of Stephen King, or thrillers in particular. This text adventure was set in a college, where strange experiments are taking place. You must stop the evil before it engulfs the whole campus...and perhaps the world itself! So cool was this game's story, puzzles, and overall play value --even to this very day-- it made Techtite's list of Top 50 Multimedia Classics. Every thriller game out today pales in comparison.
