Video Game: The Lurking Horror
Infocom's 1987 entry into the horror genre opens in the computer lab at G.U.E. Tech. You've braved a snowstorm to finish an important assignment, but find your work interrupted by strange nightmares. When your paper vanishes from the server you find yourself exploring the campus for answers.

The Lurking Horror is one of Infocom's easier text adventures, but has some very creative puzzles and great writing and atmosphere.
