Description from the packaging.

The operation... Half-man, half-machine.
From this moment on, your life will never be the same.

Within moments you will find yourself in the most fascinating, most involving, most realistic science fiction text adventure game you've ever played.

You awaken in a strange, inhospitable environment. You have no idea who you are, where you are or what you're doing there. All you know is that you are hungry... very hungry.

Slowly, painfully, you pull yourself to your feet. You feel an odd stiffness on your left side. You hear a weird electronic buzz in your head. You catch a rippling reflection in a small puddle, and suddenly you remember: the Operation! You have been transformed into a Cyborg- half human, half cybernetic!

An extremely advanced computer has been implanted in your brain. Half of your body has been replaced with sophisticated bionics. Your machine half gives you new, undreamed-of-powers- but you have paid for this gain with the loss of half of your humanity.

You begin wandering in search of sustenance. Slowly, your two half-brains begin to mesh. New perceptions emerge. As you grow stronger, your memory begins to return, and the computer brain's memory cells repair themselves. You begin, finally, to sense why you have been put here... and what you must do to get out.

Cyborg is unlike any other text adventure game., because you work with your computer, not against it. You will travel together. Learn and grow together. Succeed... or fail... together.

Your computer brain will offer its opinions on your surroundings and your choices. Your instrument panel gives you instant read-outs on your condition, your location, your inventory and your energy level. Your mouse gives you instant command over every function. As you learn to work with your cybernetic half, your adventure will unfold so smoothly, so naturally, you'll feel totally engulfed in the experience.

But now, you must seek your unknown goal. All you have to do is take the first step. Once you do, you'll be hooked.
