Description from the packaging.

Man-years in the making, The Pawn is already acknowledged as a classic.

Set in the mythical world of Kerovnia, this amusing and complex tale is subtle enough to appeal to the beginner and hardened adventurer alike. A revolutionary text-handling system allows input of complicated sentences and complete interaction with characters (including some very intelligent animals!). The Pawn represents all its characters and objects as if they existed in a real world, storing complex information about their attributes and properties linked to their particular position or context in the game.

Your objectives are manyfold: The simplest is to escape from Kerovnia, but you will find others as you wander about the land and communicate with the characters you meet. The Pawn combines a rich text adventure, with stunning color graphics, and a language parser that will set the standards for years to come.

"Adventurers will find The Pawn a delight." - QL World.
"The Pawn is a staggeringly clever... adventure." - Popular Computing Weekly.
"Long live King Erik and The Pawn." - Sinclair User.

If you enjoy adventures in the classic tradition prepare to meet a new master. Watch out for future releases from Magnetic Scrolls and Rainbird.
