"Unfortunately, we are currently closed for business. We've had a small mishap in our lab that angered a malevolent Outer God, who is forcing us to suffer through six terrible world-shattering disasters over and over again until we go insane (he won't let us die permanently). Please leave your name, number, and a brief description of your problem, and we'll be sure to get back to you as soon as we've had a word with a certain angry space octopus. Thanks!"

Version 1.6! Fixed a bunch of physics issues and a few bugs, and this time everything works like it should.

Take charge of 5 eccentric paranormal investigators! Solve 7 treacherous realms ranging from Ancient Egypt to Antarctica! Defeat mummies, dinosaurs, Deep Ones, cultists, giant scorpions, and all sorts of baffling puzzles with your teeny 4-slot inventory!

Weird controls and strange menu design. Nice audio though.

Yeah, I made this during my "help out gamers with shitty keyboards" phase. I have a cheap keyboard that doesn't register when you hold certain keys down at the same time, but it has no issue with letter keys. Woulda been nice if I coulda figured out a way to reduce the number of keys needed...

ness you know you can post a new comment, right? you don't have to post a reply in order to comment.

Each character has (mostly) unique move speed, hit points, and starting item, so it helps to determine which character is better suited to which environment. Example: most of them have to find the Jelly Babies before they can command Ammut, but Mikaela starts with them by default, so she can make a bee-line straight for him. Another example: on the Cachtice Castle level, Gabe can entirely skip the quest for the silver stake since he starts with one already.

I really like this game. The cat is amazing and I really enjoyed the mechanics overall. One little thing bothers me though. Now keep in mind that I'm not trying to be hateful or start a fight or anything, but I think you should credit Shadowrun on the Sega Genesis for all the music you used from it.

I...did credit Shadowrun. You should be seeing a credit roll each time you quit the game.

Thanks! There's a lot of intro, so I tried to make it entertaining at least.

Though I did only 2 realms, I can say that it is a very well-done game. And it is tough one. But why there is no save?

Because when you've solved all six realms, the game is less than 20 minutes to get through. Also I didn't know how to use ini files for saving at the time.
