Description

Fable is a classical puzzle-solving graphic adventure with hand-drawn backgrounds. The hero Quickthorpe is a young man who must leave his home village and travel through four fantasy worlds, each dedicated to a particular element. The goal of the journey is to find four mystic gemstones in order to learn about the secrets of an extinct race known as Mecubarz, and help his people with this knowledge. Interaction with the environment is done by clicking on an object and selecting available actions. Puzzles are for the most part inventory-based. Wrong choices may lead to the hero's death and a premature end of the game.

Trivia

Ending (Spoiler!)

The original ending to this game was that the story was the delusions of a lunatic in an asylum. The original release of the game had this ending. A new version was later released that featured a more satisfying ending.

Packaging

The box looked like an old book.
