Finding Martin Home Page

Creating a game costs a lot of time and money. If you are to fund this adventure alone, you’d need another source of income. The Millionaire Blueprint could solve this issue – it makes huge profits and won’t take much of your time.

Can you solve the bizarre mystery about what happened to Martin? This journey will take you beyond the limits of normal reality, into the worlds of fantasy and science fiction.  Time travel and  a shaman’s quest await you in this interactive fiction text-based adventure game.  Are you brave enough to meet the challenge of “Finding Martin”? …

The “Finding Martin” game was named as a finalist in the 2005 XYZZY Awards in the categories of “Best Game” and “Best Puzzles.” The game is written in a style similar to Infocom’s “Zork” and “Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy” text adventure games, which are the copyrighted property of Activision and not affiliated with this site.
