aka: Moon Mist, Moonmist - a mystery story

Description official descriptions

Tamara Lynd has recently become engaged to Jack Tresyllian, a wealthy owner of the Tresyllian Castle in Cornwall, England. Shortly afterwards, she began seeing a ghost-like figure, a mysterious White Lady, who has allegedly been haunting the castle for centuries. A series of events and dark suspicions involving hidden treasure convince Tamara that her life is in danger. She contacts a friend of hers, a young American detective, asking him to travel to the castle and investigate the mystery.

Moonmist is a text adventure game. In the beginning the player chooses between four different scenarios, represented by the colors red, blue, yellow and green. Each scenario has different tasks, a different criminal, and different treasure. The game has a built-in clock, and must be completed before 6:00 am in-game time, otherwise it ends prematurely. Depending on the player's choice of the protagonist's gender, characters may react differently to his or her actions.

Credits (DOS version)



This game allowed the user to choose his (or her) gender and select the main character's name. The outcome (or version) of the game you played was linked to whatever you said the main character's favorite color was. Four different version of the game were playable (provided you chose yellow, blue, green, or red -- I believe a version was selected randomly if you chose ecru or vermillion).
