Hello,

I'm trying to figure out the name of a text-based game I played in the 80s. I found some old notes about it which give me some clues but not much more to go on. Here's what I know:

* The game took place in the kingdom of Mayakdom ruled by queen Maya.
* The game had a very Indian feel, with the "Ocean of Material Existence", "Aftan Mountain, and a "hairy beast" named Yamaraj.
* Essential to the game is interpreting the "Bhagavad Gita As It Is" by "Swami Prabhupada".

It's not much to go on, but I'd appreciate any help you can offer. Thanks.

Unfortunately it's not Zork. Thanks anyway, though.

"TEXT: kick the cat" make you wonder what the programmers where thinking at the time, and did they not expect some random gamer to try that command....sick sick.
