Swordquest is an unfinished series of video games made by Atari, Inc. in the early eighties as part of a contest, consisting of three finished games and a planned but a fourth game was never released. Each of the games came with a comic book that explained the plot, as well as containing part of the solution to a major puzzle that had to be solved to win the contest, with a series of prizes on offer whose total value was $150,000. The series had its genesis as a possible sequel to Atari's groundbreaking 1979 title Adventure, but it quickly developed a mythology and system of play that was unique.
Swordquest Earthworld is the first game in this series.
