James Clavell's Shogun is the computer game adaptation of the famous novel Shogun by James Clavell. The game was created by Infocom and released in 1989 for Amiga. Apple II, MS-DOS, and Macintosh.

The title is known as the first Infocom text adventure that includes graphics. Infocom was, in fact, well known for the classic adventures purely based on text, also known as interactive fictions, like [Deadline], [Starcross], and, of course, [Zork: The Great Underground Empire].

Technically speaking, the game is flawless: the images are stunning, perfectly in line with the Japanese art of the 16th century, and contribute to creating a great atmosphere; the parser, being an Infocom adventure, is highly flexible and very advanced.
