A current graduate student writes, "The Lurking Horror is a text-adventure video game created by MIT alum Dave Lebling and published by Infocom. He also worked on the text-adventure game Zork.

"The game takes place at G.U.E. Tech, which is based on MIT. The fictional university includes an "infinite corridor" and a "great dome." The printed manual that came with the game included several photos of MIT buildings. A map of G.U.E. Tech shows that it is modeled on the main campus."
