    Все, кто ожидал наступления хорошей жизни, кто думал о светлых временах, мечтая о мире и счастье - могут успокоиться: ничего такого не будет. Отправленный прямиком на Солнце и тщательно там прожарившийся Озгар оказался не последней бедой планеты Эвани. Жители этого и еще нескольких миров, избавившись от опасности быть порабощенными грозным властителем темных сил, встали перед еще более ужасной проблемой: появившаяся неведомо откуда неизвестная болезнь буквально высосала души тысяч людей, превратив их в бездушных органических роботов. Мало того: загадочный недуг приобрел еще более зловещий окрас, когда выяснилось, что поражает он не всех...

    • "Эвани" - оригинальная приключенческая игра с интересным научно-фантастическим сюжетом, продолжение классического квеста "Кристальный ключ".
    • 47 локаций в трех мирах, полных тайн, неожиданных встреч и драматических поворотов.
    • Достойная, атмосферная графика.
    • Высококачественный звук и музыкальное оформление.
    • Разнообразные, нетривиальные головоломки и загадки.
