For centuries, valiant knights have pursued in vain the fabled Holy Grail. And now a man of tyranny, your stepbrother Balnard, is closing in on it and would use its power to dominate the land. The people of the world look to you, brave adventurer, to save them from this dreaded fate.
Thank the stars that you come better equipped in your search than the many who went before you. They had naught but the brute force of sword and lance. You have something far, far mightier: the awesome power of your personal computer and the wondrous game of The Holy Grail. With those two at your beck and call, you can journey through the medieval countryside; do battle with bold knights and foul dragons; converse with kings, thieves and clerics; rescue a fair princes; and pursue a treasure which has eluded mankind for ages.
Act quickly. This game will not be the same once you begin.

You are the star. TimeQuest games allow you to explore the inner reaches of your imagination, with full sentence commands and inquiries. You play the lead in a real-time drama that is a motion picture blockbuster of the mind.
So come! Journey through the ages where countless others have tried and failed. Now it's your turn. Take up the quest. Succeed, and you catch a glimpse of immortality.
But be wary! Myriad pitfalls lurk. You will need extreme cunning if you are to evade the treacherously clever villainy you will encounter along the way. If you be the least bit faint of heart, try some other game instead. For dangerous adventures aplenty await you in your bold attempt to unravel the age-old secret of the Holy Grail.
