Video Game: Glowgrass

Glowgrass is an Interactive Fiction adventure by Nate Cull in 1997 and a finalist for Best Game and Best Story in the 1997 Xyzzy Awards.

The game takes place on an alien planet where you were sent on a xenohistory mission. You play a stranded xenohistorian after your dropship crashes. Left alone at the site of what seems to the greatest discovery of the Ancient's technology you have to find a way home. Glowgrass is relatively short, more focused on telling a story than with presenting the player with puzzles. However, the parser has a habit of making a few simple actions feel like puzzles.
