This text-based adventure game from Kirsta has been haunting me for 30 years now. I've gotten quite far, but I'm stuck.

Who wants to give it a go and see if they can get further?

find kca1.exe in the patience folder here: http://drupalfun.com/sites/default/files/kirsta.rar.

So far I've found:

- fill the water flask in the palace to get through the desert
- go se se in the forest to discover the cave with the platinum ring

But:
- how to find the rest of the stuff
- do I go in the sea?
- how do I deal with the dog in the store?
- how to light the lamp to enter the second cave? Can't figure out the damn command

Thanks, I'll try it out.

(This game was not on Mobygames, so I'll probably add it later. The company is closed down since 2002, but the owner might still be around, but probably not making games nowadays)


Added this game bundle now:

I have played a bit, I did not map out the forest yet; it seems the savegame can get corrupted there when I tried, so I stayed out of it for now.

Don't know about the sea/sharks, I have found a ships bell, but no way of knowing if it is related to sea travel, as it had a strange effect. It might be for something else entirely, possibly a bell-book-candle puzzle which are common.

The dog was a danger, but I had an idea that worked out; you need another furry friend to help you. Getting the treasure from the shop requires doing things in the right order, so I'll have to retrace some steps before completing this I think.

The lamp: examine & read the lamp, and you will find out it is a magic brass lamp.
As with all magic lamps, just rub it.

(My current progress: got the Golden Sceptre & Diamond Orb)

cheers!
