I'm trying to find the name of a computer game I played when I was very young. Circa 1986-7 ish. Details inside.

The things I think I remember correctly about the game:

it was text based
i think one of the meta-goals was to assemble a mirror
the start of the game found the player in a prison cell. a command would move the bed aside to reveal a hole you could escape through.

My sister thinks it was called Covenant, but my google-fu is failing.

I googled "text game 'move bed'" and came up with this walkthrough for The Coveted Mirror.

Could it be The Prisoner? It would have been an old game by the time you played it. There was a lot of text.

I think it was having the false lead Covenant that was screwing me up. Apparently there was a Halo game with that name too and even stripping out some key terms still gave me polluted results. Thank you so much for looking y'all!
