'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.

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