40 years ago, the first wave of established novelists lending their names to computer games occurred. Michael Crichton was an exception insofar that his involvement was not just a licencing deal. Before even being approached by the eventual publisher, he started designing Amazon by himself, programmed scenes and logic himself and hired a programmer to translate his BASIC code into a more efficient language.
Now you see the violence inherent in the system!

So "Amazon" became "Congo," which has ruby-powered lasers slicing violent gorillas in half at the end. I have been wanting to play the game to the end just to see if that happens.
