Skyland's Star

Skyland's Star is a text adventure game in the spirit of the classic Zork series.  With a sophisticated parser, a huge map, and an intriguing story line, Skyland's Star will be a welcome trip down memory lane for long-time gamers.

In Skyland's Star, you take on the role of a scientist recruited to time-travel into Earth's future.  Present day Earth is in desperate trouble.  The rapid population growth and ever increasing need for energy has all but depleted the world's fossil fuels, and thus far science has been unable to fully replace them with a safe alternative.  You must time-travel into the future to find out how (and if) the citizens of the future Earth handled the problem, and then return to the present, so that the present day may put that knowledge to use.  This will be possible using an advanced, but still experimental, process that makes time travel possible . . .

Skyland's Star works on pretty much any PC running Windows XP or later.  During the installation process, the install program will verify that Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 is present on your computer.  Chances are, it is.  But if it is not, you will be notified and the installation will stop.  To continue, you must download and install the .NET Framework, free from www.microsoft.com.
