This fall, come to a fantastic realm of magic and wonder where a young hero strives against ancient evil. Lead him on a perilous quest to find a talisman of great power and restore the lost majesty of a fallen kingdom.

Originally released in the arcades in 1984, Thayer's Quest drew fans in with its inventive interface. Instead of the standard joystick for control, it used a unique keypad. Success in this game is all about your decisions, not your reflexes. Designed for the arcade scene by Rick Dyer, the creator of Dragon's Lair, Thayer's Quest was a game that gave players more choice and allowed each player to have a unique gaming experience that made it an instant hit. Now Digital Leisure has brought the experience to your home computer or DVD movie player for the first time ever. You control Thayer as he journeys through the Five Kingdoms to recover the lost artifacts of Quoid on your CD-ROM or DVD-ROM computer, or DVD movie player using the remote control.

"For fans of classic 2D animation games like Dragon's Lair and Space Ace this is a must-have for their video game library," said Elizabeth Foster, president of Digital Leisure. "Thayer's Quest includes all the excitement of the original arcade game, but with all new remastered audio and video that highlights the classic 2D animation"

Players control the actions of Thayer as he makes his way through the five enchanted kingdoms. Thayer's Quest allows you to choose many different directions in the game, but beware of what lies on your dangerous journey through the kingdoms as using the wrong spell or giving up the wrong item could be the last move you make. However, many people you'll meet along the journey will help you recover the lost artifacts. So make your choices carefully. Thayer's Quest, the fantasy is yours!
