Beyond the Tesseract is a text based adventure game developed in 1983 by David Lo for the TRS-80. The game was notable for its unique take on the genre and approach to mathematical entities and abstract concepts. In one section the player must navigate a text adventure game, inside the text adventure game. In another the player, while asleep, derives a proof using physical representations of various symbolic logic components.
The game is intentionally vague using a VERB NOUN gameplay mechanic with a vocabulary of just 200.
In 1988 the game was ported to Atari ST, MS-DOS and Solaris environments and, in 2003, to interactive fiction standard of machine-independent Z-code.
