The Oasis in the Desert is a lost adventure created by Michael Penner around 1989 for Eamon 3.0, his Atari ST port of the Eamon game system, and is the last of the three full Atari adventures he authored. Penner uploaded all three to the GEnie file library, but though the first two have been recovered, no copies of Oasis have yet been found.
In comments in 2013, Penner recalled, "The only feedback I ever got on any of these adventures back when I wrote them was from a woman whose son had downloaded OASIS.ARC from GEnie, played it and went absolutely nuts for it. She wrote me a letter telling me how much he loved it, and I have to assume since it was the last one I wrote (summer after senior year) it would be well worth finding."
