While on your journey, you are assisted by two teleports, which allow you to move back and forth between locations. Very useful to not have to return after having made a wrong turn - just put a teleport before making a difficult decision and then return quickly.

The game features an original soundtrack with all tunes written especially for the game.

At times you will all be surrounded by passages!


The game saves your progress. To do that press S at any time or ESC to save and exit.

I am not currently sharing the source of the game here so as to not reveal all the secrets. In time, this will be done.

This game would truly be impossible without Game Editor. Fantastic tool for game creation, it is inspiring, comfortable to work with and is powered by an enthusiastic community. Thanks fellas!

I am equally obliged to resources http://charas-project.net/, http://rpg2000.4players.de/ and http://opengameart.org/. Keep them sprites coming!

Although most mazes were generated, hand edited and some even drawn from scratch by myself, I owe several sophisticated pieces to Daedalus, probably the best maze program on the planet. Walter, you are definitely The maze geek! Infinite respect!

Several of my maze enthusiastic friends should not go unnoticed, namely Sash and Gnom, whose eagerness to play the game fueled the race to completion.

My wife and her putting up with me while I disappeared from social life doing this game, as well as her advice on gameplay, were of great value.

And finally, greetings to all GNU/Linux users!
