Looks like "Entombed".  Although I'm not sure I know of the "in the news" reference. 

That is correct!

So in September of 2019 I posted a gameplay video of the game as seen below. Usually my gameplay video get around 200-300 views. But this one quickly passed 1,000 views, which caught me off guard. It turns out that around the same time, the BBC posted an article about the game and how programmers were trying to figure out the ingenious way the game works. Today, it's one of my more popular video with over 7,000 views, all thanks to a BBC article that didn't even link the video.

Here's the article: https://www.bbc.com/future/article/20190919-the-maze-puzzle-hidden-within-an-early-video-game

Oh!  I guess I kind of do vaguely remember that.  You know, I'm positive I have written a lot of code when I was younger that worked brilliantly, but I'd be unable to figure out or recreate now. 

That game is fun at first, but gets impossible pretty quick. 

Here's the next one for you all:

Platform:  2600
