To play video games or not to play video games? In 1997, EMME Interactive SA released Hamlet: A Murder Mystery video game (box pictured, click to enlarge).
Here’s an excerpt from MobyGames: “As Young Hamlet, you must avenge the terrible murder of your father and become the new King of Denmark. Use cunning, courage and nerves of steel to survive five levels of gameplay and win the crown in a last and vicious sabre duel in cyber space. Become ‘whole and complete’ in body and spirit by collecting all ten wits of man. Your task is to kill the King, but prevent the deaths of the innocent!” (Via Mike Cane)
