Second dawn is another fantasy interactive fiction adventure from Malinche set in the world of Pentari. Sequal to Pentari, first light, see index You once again take on the roll of an adventurerous military type. Thanks to your previous exploits however, you've been raised to the exaulted position of Governer of the newly founded city of Lindon, sixth city of the empire.
With lots of magic, a compelling writing style, spells, mystical artifacts and a huge world to explore, going from coal mines to sandy beaches, ---- not to mention the need to defend your city against invaders, this game has plenty to do.
An interesting point about Pentari, second dawn is that it takes place at the same time as Pentari, the apprentice and allows you to play through the same scenario and events from the perspective of the city's governer, rather than a failed apprentice wizard bent on rescuing his guild master. You can even run both games in separate windows and play them together for a fully immersive experience.
Though unlike some of Malinche's other titles there is no demo of this game available, Malinche do have a 60 day money back guarantee offer, so should you decide this game isn't for you, you haven't lost anything, ---- which makes trying it out easier (though you do of course have to send Malinche the cash in the interim).
You may download the game as a stand alone program, ---- with or without self-voicing text to speech capability. This will create a folder and program short cuts for directly running the game, as well as installing either Winfrotz, see game page or Winfrotz tts see index page depending whether or not you install the tts self-voicing version of the program or not. If you already have either of these interpreters, you can also download the story file separately as well, and open it in your chosen version of Winfrotz the way you'd open any Z code game
As well as the game, you'll also get a copy of the pdf Malinche players guide, click here to read online Which is a great introduction to Interactive fiction in general, ---- and malinche's games in particular.
