Softporn Adventure (On-Line Systems, 1983 or so)

An all-text game from On-Line Systems (later Sierra On-Line), Softporn Adventure is a precursor to their Leisure Suit Larry series, with a plot almost identical to that of Leisure Suit Larry. While mildly entertaining because of its theme, the game suffered from a very limiting parser, which seemed especially weak when compared to the more advanced and adaptable one used by Infocom during the same time period. Still, to see some of Sierra's earliest work, Softporn Adventure is an interesting game, if only for the novelty value.
