Empire of the Over-Mind (sometimes Empire of the Overmind) is an interactive fiction game written by Gary Bedrosian and published by Avalon Hill for the Apple II, Atari 8-bit family, and TRS-80 in 1981. A version with an enhanced display for MS-DOS by Bedrosian was published in 1986.
Empire of the Over-Mind is an all-text adventure game in which the player tries to destroy the Over-Mind, an evil computer that has taken over a magic kingdom.
In a 1984 COMPUTE! piece on adventure games, Selby Bateman wrote: "One very popular game for Avalon Hill has been its all-text adventure, Empire of the OverMind [sic] for Apple II and Atari computers, which is still selling well, notes Jack Dodd, Avalon Hill's director of marketing."
Bill Seligman reviewed Empire of the Overmind in The Space Gamer No. 49. Seligman commented that "For the price of this primitive program, one could buy two-and-a-half Scott Adams all-text adventures or one full-color graphics adventure from On-Line. Not recommended."
