Baf's Guide


This game answers the question, "What if The Name of the Rose had been written by H. P. Lovecraft?" The year is 1347. The famous Abbey has burned down mysteriously, and you are sent by the Pope to investigate and, with any luck, to retrieve the treasures hidden there. As you do so, you discover the site's dark secrets. The game is just brimming over with atmosphere. Unfortunately, the parser is very weak and some of the puzzles rather obscure. Gameplay is organized into chapters, with one major puzzle per chapter. A weird one, and deserving of a better game engine.

-- Carl Muckenhoupt

SPAG
[...] This old-time DOS adventures deserves a SPAG review for its attempts to bring the medieval thriller genre to IF, and for its good puzzles, plot, and imagery. This imagery is achieved despite descriptions which are not surprisingly economic considering that parser and world are condensed into a 51K executable. [...] (Cedric Knight)
