'You play Edmond, an accident-prone electron, as he attempts to recover from crashing his 'orbital' and find a way home.'

The Life of a Lone Electron was a text adventure produced for the ZX Spectrum 48K, first published by Delbert the Hamster Software in 1992 with the bonus adventure Get Me to the Church on Time! on the B-Side.

A PAWed Amstrad CPC/PCW CP/M version of this title was produced and sold by Philip Reynolds of The Adventure Workshop with The Quest for the Holy Snail on the B-Side.

The original Amstrad port is currently "lost" but a new version for CP/M, produced from the Spectrum source file, has been created. (2018)

When Delbert the Hamster Software closed, Zenobi Software took over the distribution of this title and it appeared on their Hamster Droppings compilation.
