Similar in style to The Fool's Errand and 3 in Three, System's Twilight is a puzzle game that takes place inside a computer that's seen far better days. The system has taken a beating; the Council of Powers has long since vanished, and even the simplest functions are in need of repair. Players must take up their bits, bytes, binary trees and other useful items, skills, and structures to repair the damage and reinstate the Council of Powers.
