About the Story

Step inside the magical kingdom of Pentari as a captain in the Empire's army. Dark forces have plunged an entire city into chaos and you are sent in to stop them. Your sword and your wits won't be enough. You must grow to become a master of magic and rise up to vanquish a great, hidden evil.

Immerse yourself into the magical lands of Pentari where elves, dwarves, men and even dragons all live together in peace. A world where magic is real and life is good. The Wizards of Pentari have reached the pinnacle of sorcery and have assured the kingdom's safety and prosperity forever thanks to potent new magics under their control. Three powerful orbs, forged by sweat and sorcerery, bring unimaginable power to those who wield them. Those orbs have been turned to evil by traitorous sorcerers bent on conquering Pentari. Thanks to their treachery, the Guild of Wizards has been overrun as their own power was used against them. The city of Delphin is all but fallen, your own men lost to you.

Will the kingdom of Pentari be destroyed? Not if you're up to the challenge. First Light is a work of Interactive Fiction where anything is possible and everything is worth a try. You are the hero in this adventure and your every move will mean salvation or total destruction for everything you hold dear.

Editorial Reviews

Just Adventure

All in all, PFL is a game that will appeal both the hard-core IF player as well as the casual adventurer and constitutes a must-play for those spellbound to fantasy.

It is not a Bad Game the way that, say, L.U.D.I.T.E. or Slacker X is. If it were, it'd at least be amusingly pathetic. More's the pity, it is merely inept. To highlight a particular aspect: most of the words were spelled right. It is the worst piece of writing I have ever seen with this distinction

Strange Breezes Interactive Fiction Reviews

This demo in *no way* lives up to the hype by its author. The full game might, just *might,* overcome all the difficulties this version faces, but I sincerely doubt it at this time.

I was wondering just how many games out there, either completely text based, or text-adventure hybrids, are out there that involve a story line over the course of several games. I know for sure of the Sorcerer trilogy from Infocom...any...

Indie games that are commercial or were commercial at one point by deathbytroggles
So I'm not looking for games from the well-known companies like Infocom, Tellarium, Legend, etc. Looking to compile a list of: 1. Games that used to be commercial but no longer (e.g. Once and Future, The Shadow and the Cathedral, 1893)...
