Forgotten text game from the 90s

I played a text-based adventure game in the early 90's but I can't remember its name.

It was around the same time as Full Throttle, Sam and Max, etc, but I don't think it was a Sierra or Lucas game. It was text-based, but in the upper left quarter of the screen they'd put pretty good illustrations of whatever you were looking at.
I think the company that came up with the engine made many different games, but the two I remember were a bladerunner-esque one and a "nerds go to college and win over bimbos" themed one. The bladerunner one was pretty exciting; I remember receiving email each day in the game world and thinking how exciting it would be if BBSes were all connected so people could have a single BBS email account for the whole world.
