Shattered trust,  murdered innocence and dark pacts have plunged the Kingdom of Pentari in chaos.
Rogue wizards have captured the city of Delphin and hold kingdom nobles prisoner. They conspire to overthrow the Kingdom itself but they won't stop there.  You are sent into the turmoil to strive against unknown foes and dangers as you re-take the city and restore order.

First Light is a huge game; You have nearly 300 rooms to explore including a city to be searched, an underground complex to explore, as well as monsters and wizards to contend with.  The friendly folks you'll meet can be a handful too!
Pentari: First Light is multi-faceted; this isn't simply a gather-the-treasures and solve-the-puzzles text adventure.  There are nobles to rescue, murder to avenge, mysteries to be solved and ultimate evil that can only be confronted in the place of their greatest power. You'll experience a wide range of emotions as you make your way in and around Delphin. Some things you'll see will charm you while a few characters may infuriate you.  Not only that, you'll probably be laughing a good deal of the time with much light-hearted humor throughout the game.
Executed in the tradition of Infocom games, Pentari: First Light utilizes the latest development tools to render an immersive experience that delivers Interactive Fiction that reads like a compelling novel but rivets you to the game as you decide what your next move should be.

(The folio edition includes PFL-Lite on the CD-ROM)

Every Folio Edition of First Light comes with an antique key and official military writ as well as the CD-ROM containing story files (full size and slightly smaller "Palm friendly" versions), instructions and interpreters for Windows (all versions), Windows CE (MIPS and ARM), DOS, Macintosh (OS9.x and OS X), Palm OS, MorphOS, Unix and Linux! If your interpreter is not already included, we will email you any and all interpreters you may need.  Even so, the Folio Edition still makes an excellent collector's item.

Added Bonus: The Pentari Prequel is also included on the CD-ROM and is also available to customers who receive First Light via digital delivery (download).  This smaller game, released in 1997, sets the stage for First Light.  The Pentari Prequel is only available to customers who purchase First Light.
