by Med Systems / Screenplay
(Screenplay plain white box (actually Asylum II))
Here's an obscure little gem of a game where the goal is to escape from
the mental institution in which you're trapped. This is the one with the
famous "piano" puzzle: Your character has a morbid fear that a piano will
come crashing down on his head if he looks up... and if you try it, that's
exactly what happens! So to get past another character who's blocking your
path, you have to make them look up, so the piano lands on them
I've run across a lot of people searching for this'n. Everyone
who's ever played it seems to have fond memories of it. Unfortunately
it's also quite rare, Med Systems being a rather small game shop. For
some computer platforms, only 500 or 1000 copies were ever produced.
Note that this game is actually Asylum II, even though it says
Asylum. Med Systems changed their name to Screenplay about
halfway through their run. All Screenplay releases are Asylum II,
while Med Sys packages indicate the original Asylum. Both games
are pretty much the same, but Asylum II is smaller and much easier
than the first.
