Description

Your friend Alex goes missing, a trail of notes and clues left behind, pointing to his possible whereabouts. All the while, you uncover an artifact so powerful you wish you had never laid eyes on it, and you learn of an ancient order of monks with ties to it. And the key to all three lies in -- the Oracle.

The Oracle is a freeware adventure built in Adventure Game Studio. The game is played from a first-person perspective and interaction consists of picking up objects, talking to characters, and interacting with hotspots. The puzzles are similar to Myst and other adventure games in that they involve inventory manipulation and finding clickable items in static backgrounds. There is no animation in the game and all of the backgrounds are composed of photographs the game creator took in Portugal and Canada. The game comes with a built-in hint system.
