castleoftheredprince.pngIt's been ages since Pacian's last game was gracefully released, but, finally, his latest piece of interactive fiction has been made available and we can all enjoy a fresh, lovely, short, freeware, well written and quite dark text adventure. Castle of the Red Prince, for this is what the thing is called, is a game focused on exploring atmospheric Amaranth; a land of darkness not wholly dissimilar to Ravenloft (only much better written) and a place ruled by the apparently evil and rather undead Red Prince. Kill the guy and you have both beaten the game and immensely enjoyed yourselves.

Castle of the Red Prince can be played in the comfort of your browser and, of course, downloaded for your offline pleasure.
