The Pen and the Dark

by Keith Campbell


About the Story

A challenging adventure game based on "The Pen and the Dark", one of Colin Kapp's classic SF series of stories about The Unorthodox Engineers.

Faced with an insuperable problem under alien conditions, Fritz van Noon's band of Unorthodox Engineers have no option but to resort to unorthodox methods.

Can you, in the role of Fritz van Noon, discover the purpose of the indestructible pillar of darkness left by an alien race on an otherwise normal planet, and solve the riddle of contra-energy?
