Title: Real Life Publisher: Relational Systems Corporation
Type: Game Author: Gerry Rzeppa

Year of release:

1985
Platforms: Apple II, Macintosh
Copies sold: 50-100

Real Life: The Greatest Adventure of All, an "interactive novel" by Relational Systems Corporation, is billed as a simulation of life, to help you figure out where you're going, or perhaps how to avoid getting there.

The game features a split-screen setup: on the left, descriptions are given and commands are entered. A list of possible commands appears on the right side of the screen.

The game was soundly trashed by John C. Dvorak in MacUser, who called it "insensitive", "self-righteous", and "offensive". According to the author's son, the Dvorak article just about ended all sales of the game.
