Crystal of the Pharaoh Welsh Adventure Game

Interested in playing a Welsh adventure game? B-DAG, a UK-based educational company, has created Crystal of the Pharaoh, a bilingual English/Welsh game based on the Welsh children's book Crisial y Pharo.

After buying an old computer from his Uncle Harri, Pryderi is shocked to find himself being dragged into the computer. There, he becomes friends with the strange creatures who live there. But the evil wizard Swrief is intent on destroying the computer and all who live there by stealing the Magic Crystal which is hidden deep inside the pyramid. Only Pryderi can save them and he has to overcome numerous dangers and obstacles to reach the Crystal before Swrief.

The game was written by Aled O. Richards, author of Crisial y Pharo. It is aimed at children ages 8 to 11, is available for Windows, and costs 29.99.
