About the StoryYou start at the entrance to the Gold Coast Casino's new Virtual Reality Gaming Room. There is a neon sign over the doorway that says: GO ON A VR ADVENTURE! WIN BIG!
This parser-based game features puzzles, turn-based combat, leveling up, treasure, loot, weapons, armor, and classic adventuring. There is an integral non-spoiler hint system, and an in-game, contextual walkthrough for each puzzle and location. The player kit contains a map, a Windows interpreter, and instructions for setting up a Mac to run the game.
