Eric Knight is a confused young man who was a famous child prodigy inventor, but who hasn’t seen much success since. Strange things always seem to happen around Eric—door knobs fall off in his hands, computer screens go blank when he touches them, alarms go off randomly as he walks by.

Today, he will find out why.

Thaumistry: In Charm's Way is a hilarious text adventure from award-winning Infocom and Legend Entertainment author Bob Bates. Set in present-day New York City, the game is a joke-a-minute romp filled with offbeat characters, improbable spells, and well-crafted puzzles.
