The software program you'll play with all the lights on.
The setting is a quiet New England town. Or is it? Because when a mysterious mist descends upon it, anything can happen.
An enormous, bloodthirsty dragonfly removes heads with a snap. A mutant centipede attacks with razor-sharp legs. A giant presence paralyzes with the shriek of a curfew whistle from hell.
This could only be Stephen King's The Mist’. Although it's based on the novella of the same name, you can't turn to the last page in this frightening text adventure from Mindscape’.
Your commands control the action. Those you confront along the way react to your every move.
Journey to your software dealer for Stephen King's The Mist’. And while you're there, ask for Mindscape's’ other new text adventures: James Bond 007: A View To A Kill’, Forbidden Castle’ and Voodoo Island’. Each one is delightfully terrifying.
Even with the lights on.

Another Saturday. Another stop at the market. And another wait in the checkout line. Until a shadow descends and someone shouts: "The fog! You oughta see it!" And you do: a mist advancing toward Federal Foods, engulfing the blue sky, the familiar landmarks of Bridgton, and... all the people in its path. Your typical Saturday has just ended.
Mindscape makes YOU the central character in Stephan King's classic tale of horror. YOU control the action as you desperately fight the hideous things in the Mist and try to uncover what the Arrowhead Project really was. Crazy Mrs. Carmody might be right: this COULD be the end.
Enter Stephen King's world of terror -- if you dare -- and discover that the nightmare is just the beginning...
