Description

Based upon Ray Bradbury's "The Martian Chronicles" series of stories, this game puts you on the red planet as a nuclear war is brewing on earth. You are instructed to find an ancient relic hidden in the ancient martian city of Xi, which could mean earth's salvation. Also you must find out what happened to the other five persons that went looking for it before you, and keep yourself alive by collecting a series of crystals that power your suit.

You proceed through the game via Myst-like slideshows, and you have to solve a series of logic puzzles to advance through the game.

Included as an extra are a series of video interviews of Bradbury plus readings of some of the first "Martian" stories.
