Grail to the Thief stars a thief from the future named Hank Krang, who “recently had a self-aware time machine called the Time Excursion Digital Interface, or TEDI, fall into his lap after a poker game. He has decided to use this technology to go throughout time, stealing priceless artifacts.” His first destination? Arthurian times, in search of the Holy Grail.
While the game follows in the footsteps of interactive fiction like Zork and Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Grail to the Thief adds full voiceovers to the on-screen text, and gameplay consists of making choices through conversation trees rather than typing answers. Easily navigated even by the blind, ambient sounds and music complement the story, making this a game that anyone can enjoy.
