Soul Crystal - A very atmospheric Commodore 64 game from 1992 is now fully translated!

For those of you who love playing text based graphical adventures, then we have just found out through the CSdb database, that the classic 1992 game of 'Soul Crystal' by Avantgardistic Arts, has now been fully translated by CSixx, and released by well known sceners Onslaught for the Commodore 64! A game that has very positive feedback such as "Superb game, played it for hours back then. Graphics and music are great, and I really like the game's atmosphere".

Reading some of the abandonware sites for this game, this is the best write up about Soul Crystal! "This is one of the better German text adventures, with a fun and interesting story, a fairly good parser, and a mouse-driven interface. The plot sounds as if it were inspired by Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland: you are a lad named Dave, spending your holidays alone in a hotel near a mysterious loch in Scotland. You go swimming in the lake and dive through a waterfall - on the other side of it, you're finding yourself in a strange fantasy-like world. The game is very nicely presented with excellent music and (small) graphics. Probably one of the last commercial games of its kind".

  1. Must have been a pain in the ass back at that time without the cartridge version ;)

  2. Fantastic! i was expecting the amiga version but the c64 one is most welcome too!! great graphics and fantastic music to play it on WinVice?? no mouse control,just keyboard?

  3. At the workbench screen you can select three input devices... Keyboard, mouse or joystick

  4. There's also a remake being made, which will have full real textparser input in stead of icon buttons and obviously no protection passwords.
