'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.

In 2019 the original 1993 Amstrad CP/M port by Adventure Workshop version was finally found.

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

New for 2019! A new version of the game has been produced that is powered by the DAAD system. This edition of the game includes quite a few bug-fixes as well as several Quality of Life tweaks. It's available for the Spectrum 48K as well as the Commodore 64.
