The intro screen of the Apple II version of Eamon

Eamon is an interactive role-playing game with over 270 unique adventures, first developed around 1979 for the Apple II and since ported to many other systems. This wiki collects and records information about the history of the game, from its creation by Donald Brown, through the growing list of collaborators and adventure authors over many years, to the various system ports and newsletters.

Learning about Eamon

Eamon is remarkable for the ability to create a player character in the Main Hall and take the same character on dozens of different quests. Its many adventures range from fantasy quests, to dungeon crawls, to sci-fi and modern adventures, as well as a few that defy categorization.

For a list of all the adventures, plus walkthroughs and other info, see the Adventures Portal. To learn about the many individuals who have created and contributed to the game, see the People Portal.
