Back of Jewel Case - SEGA Saturn (United States):
    In a world borne of enchantment, there is only one rule: Expect the impossible. Pike is an orphan raised by harpies. His life in the harpy village has been one of peace and tranquility. However, with a slow, dreadful certainty, an insidious wave of evil is spilling over the land. The ancient truce that united man and beast, magician and harpy begins to unravel, and the lad is overrun by war and unrest. Beasts savage, attack men, men attack harpies, dragons roam the skies, and terror gripe all. Without warning Pike is thrust to the lore of this conflict and must find the source of the evil and return peace to the land in order to save the life of one he holds most dear. Assume the role of Pike as he travels the land, gaining colorful comrades, fighting terrifying battles in true-RPG menu-driven combat, and exploring danger-filled dungeons accompanied by eerily moving orchestral music. Gather your wits and set out at once, for the final confrontation that will decide the fate of Pike's world is rushing forth, and the dark evil bound since the days of Albert demands vengeance.
