The Interbank Incident is a graphical, icon based role playing adventure game, written under the OS-9 operating system. Because of this, it supported running off of a hard drive (the first game to do so), and also supported speech through the Sound Speech Pack. (It also supported multi-tasking, so you could play the game while doing other things, like downloading from a BBS, compiling code, etc.).
In the game, you get to select from 7 possible characters (all with unique attributes, that will affect how the game play goes), and then you have to try to recover a special Code Book, that controls a top secret satellite that can take over airplanes, control nuclear submarines, or "even destroy a city". It included some neat features, including doing actions based on icons (for GET, USE, etc.), and had a cool magnifier option, that would simply magnify the pixels on the screen (at multiple levels) if the area you were magnifying was of no major significance, or would load an overlay window with much more detailed graphics if it was of significance. The original game took 3 disks (153K each).
