About the Story

'A wizard, haunted by visions of a terrible future, must travel the world and take on a mighty enemy who can reach into the very minds of men.'

Deception of the Mind's Eye was originally designed as a two-part adventure for the ZX Spectrum 128K home computer in 1992/93 but never released.

The files for this game were recovered in 2010. This version contains the fully playable and complete first half of the game. (There are still some spelling and other errors in part one... it's possible this isn't my final version... as it was playtested and corrected back in the day). Part two of the game was written and designed but never fully programmed. A "demo" version has been included which contains the initial first few sections of the second installment of the story.
