    Mindshadow. A Unique Challenge In Home Computer Software:



    You're One In 4,762,300,000.



    The Question Is Which One?



    Amnesia. Complete and total. And very, very dangerous.

    Who are you and why were you left on this isolated beach to perish? The search for your identity begins here, but before it ends you will travel the globe seeking clues.

    You'll have to deal with intrigue, deceptions, reversals and unsavory characters to unravel the mystery of this "living novel."

    Phil Wiswell, the respected syndicated columnist, in his review of our new illustrated text adventure said: "Mindshadow is... frightening, frustrating and completely absorbing. Brilliant."

    Look at it this way: There are only four billion seven hundred sixty-two million three hundred thousand possibilities.

Back of cover sleeve:
    You find yourself lost in the middle of a mystery. Who are you? Where will you go? What will you do? London, Luxembourg. Across oceans and continents. You struggle for answers. For your identity. And for the faceless betrayer who left you to perish. Deception abounds. As do twisted traps and devious characters. But a wise, legendary bird named "Condor" helps in the worst of times. This brilliantly wrought mystery echoes with intricate challenges and unexpected reversals. Yet skillfully, it speaks to you in direct, simple prose. And its greatly expanded vocabulary allows you to talk to the computer in plain English. And that means hours of true enjoyment for both novice and advanced adventure.
