Back of Slipcase - Windows/Windows 3.1 (United States):

    THE GOLD'S BEEN UNEARTHED, NOW ONLY SECRETS REMAIN...

    Sharpen your spurs and polish your six-shooter. You're Edward Carnby back in action in the wildest Western epic this side of the grave!

    You've been summoned to Hill Century's Studios' latest movie set: a two-bit ghost town by the name of Slaughter Gulch. The film crew's been kidnapped, and only your sharp shooting and even sharper sleuthing can save the heroine, Emily Hartwood.

    Enjoy up to 70 hours of gameplay piecing together this dusty puzzle and breaking the grip of the town's curse. Every cobwebbed corner holds a new clue, but be warned: you'll find no friends in the trigger-happy souls who drift across your path like so much tumbleweed.

    So saddle up and get ready to ride into the shadowy unknown, but hold on tight...you can't imagine how wild the west can get.

Back Cover - DOS (German):
    Edward Carnby erhob die Augen. Der Adler schien den Mond zu streifen.

    SLAUGHTER GULCH, die tote Stadt, machte ihrem Namen alle Ehre! Der Wind der Sierra ließ die Tür des alten Saloons knarren...

    Ein greller Schrei zerriß die Nacht... Der Medizinmann der Navajos hatte recht: Emily Hartwood schwebte in Lebensgefahr.

    Ein Klicken... Jemand lud eine Winchester... Carnby zog seinen Colt... Leer!

    Krachend zersplitterte der Absatz seines Stiefels. Er mußte unbedingt Patronen auftreiben. Schnell!

    Der Mond verhüllt sich. Carnby schnellte vorwärts. Seine Schulter stieß an einem steinernen Sockel.

    Die Statue von Jed Stone blickte kühl auf ihn herab. Plötzlich fühlte er eine eisige Hand auf seiner Schulter...

    Langsam taumelte er in die Finsternis... Allein!

Back of UK release box:
    Edward Carnby looked up. An Eagle was visible as it skimmed the light of the moon.
    Slaughter Gulch, never had a ghost town been so aptly named! The hot sierra wind blew open the swing door to the old saloon bar...
    A scream echoed through the night air... The old Navajo witch doctor was right. Emily Hartwood's life was at risk.
    A sudden crack... A Winchester being loaded... Carnby drew his six-shooter... Empty!
    The hell of his boot split into pieces. He had to find cartridges... Quickly!
    The moon began to cloud over. Carnby rushed out. His shoulder hit against a stone object.
    The statue of Jed Stone towered above him. He felt the second bullet tear into his back...
    Slowly, he tumbled into the darkness... Alone, Alone in the Dark!
