Avalon Hill has been in the game business long before the home computer even existed (1958). Manufacturing mostly tabletop war games and simulations, it was only natural for them to try their hands at computer war games in the early days of home computers, releasing them under the 'Microcomputer Games' division logo. They likely saw the computer as a useful tool for reducing the computations the player had to do manually until then. As a result they produced several dozen games very early on in the late 70s and early 80s, including a few RPGs. They all came in large, beautifully illustrated boxes, and perhaps the most remembered one is Telengard for the C64, a dungeon romp similar to Temple of Apshai by Epyx. They stopped making computer games under the Microcomputer Games label in the mid-80s, and Avalon Hill continues to make strategy board games to this day, though they now belong to Hasbro.
