Refers to a series of computer systems released from the late 1970s onwards.
The series included the Commodore 64 (1982), one of the best-selling 8-bit computers of the 1980s, and one that competed in the UK with the Spectrum for popularity amongst home-users. Text adventures available for the Commodore 64 included many games by Infocom, Magnetic Scrolls, and Level 9.
In 1985, the Commodore 128 was released with more memory. Making use of this increased capacity, Infocom produced larger adventure games for the Commodore 128, including A Mind Forever Voyaging. However, the Commodore 128 was soon superseded by the Motorola 680x0 based Commodore Amiga models (24/32 Bit).
