System's Twilight: An Abstract Fairy Tale
Version 1.1.0 (freeware)
http://www.eblong.com/zarf/twilight.html

This game is a story and a puzzle. The story is made up of several
parts, not all of which may be obvious. The puzzle is made up of many
puzzles, some of which aren't obvious at all.
That's all I'll tell you. The rest you get to figure out yourself.
Have fun.
Puzzle-game enthusiasts will notice that this game is in the style of
Cliff Johnson's classic puzzle games, "3 in Three" and "The Fool's
Errand". However, be assured that the story and all the puzzles are
original. In fact, as far as I know, all twelve *kinds* of puzzles are
original. The interface is a step forward as well, allowing full
control over your character's movement and the ability to pick up and
carry objects.

It is compatible with System 6.0.7 or System 7 or later, any Macintosh
or Power Mac, and can be played on monochrome, 16-color, or 256-color
displays. It requires only 1 meg of free memory. Complete help about
the interface is available under the Help/Balloon menu (or, under
System 6, the Apple menu.)

I do not give out hints on the puzzles, because I hate to spoil other
people's fun. If you want help, you may have some luck asking on the
Usenet group comp.sys.mac.games.adventure, or on other on-line games
forums.

System's Twilight is freeware. (Previous versions were shareware,
but as of January 2000, you can play the entire game for free. This
version of the game no longer asks for registration codes.)

This program is copyright 1993-2000 by Andrew Plotkin. Anyone may copy
