The Tarturian This is a very early graphics and text adventure game released soon after Mystery House. Intriguingly, the game allows you to choose the type of character you'd like to be at the start (ala Ultima). From that point on, it becomes a "standard" graphics + text adventure, except that at that point in time there were only a couple of examples of the genre to draw upon for design inspiration.

There are many misspellings in the brief text supplied with the game (fortunately the commands aren't misspelled - that would make the game unplayable) [source:mobygames]
