DescriptionYou are a normal person, finding oneself in the strange world of Piland, a surreal place containing the secret of the wondrous Golden Sundial of Pi. After figuring out how to properly enter Piland, you must find clues to the Sundial's location, with the help (and hindrance) of the Piman, a strange little creature with distinct likes and dislikes. The Sundial is not actually in the game - it was the prize of a contest, won using the clues within the game.

TriviaThe contest of the game leads players to a real-life location in the UK - reach this location at the time hinted at by the game, to win a sundial worth £6,000. For many years nobody solved it, and C&VG magazine alleged it to be a scam. Soon afterwards, Sue Cooper and Lizi Newman of Yorkshire solved the game, and Automata released the full solution showing how it had been done.
