Game Title:
The Shadow of Yserbius

Alternate Releases:

Roberta Williams, who designed Sierra's first game, Mystery House in 1980, felt it was time to write another murder mystery which lived up to the computer capabilities of the late eighties. Mystery House, which was put on public domain in 1988, was the first computer game ever with graphics, but it lacked colors, animation and sound. The Colonel's Bequest was developed, using EGA graphics, Sierra's SCI engine, sound and a music score, as well as featuring a deeper plot and more detailed character descriptions.

The game has a sequel, The Dagger of Amon Ra, which is also the last Laura Bow game. Both games are also included in the 1997 King's Quest Collection and the Roberta Williams Anthology. Although the original release of The Colonel's Bequest can still relatively easily be found on online auctions, a complete original game is considered as a true collector's item, as it contains many goodies which are often missing from second-hand sales, particularly the Laura Bow pen and notebook. The games copyright protection is also quite original: the gamer needs to use a magnifying glass (included in the box) to identify a fingerprint on the game screen.

Hey, I wonder about imagination / inn server function if possible that ther somewhere , have read about everything that was then scrapped down thinking still ask the question if you possible can have any ounce of hope over the fine- server core of the program somewhere to go, or can get it somehow , or maybe you can help us in any way to program a working program for all or some games, there are not many of os remains still playing it, it would be desirable to play with their friends, would be worth gold to start up some things for those who are still playing on can continue with friends.
