At the beginning of April 2016 Peter Verdi's Magnetic Scrolls Chronicles website went offline. So far all my attempts to contact Peter failed. His site carried some invaluable interviews with former Magnetic Scrolls people. To preserve the work I temporarily uploaded a dump of his site taken in summer of 2015. All you can see below is 100% Peter's work! Hopefully his site will reappear soon! Peter, if you read this, can you contact me?

Remember how it's like to ride on a cloud? How it feels to be squashed by a bus, or how to get that damned gold disc from Micky? Well, here's your chance to relive all these situations.

Have a chat with the devil in THE PAWN, ransack an entire island in THE GUILD OF THIEVES, restore luck itself to a whole country in JINXTER, uncover a conspiracy in CORRUPTION, become an inter-dimensional secret agent in FISH!, an ancient god in MYTH, walk in the footsteps of Alice in WONDERLAND and inherit a haunted mansion in THE LEGACY.
Become a part of the fantasy of Magnetic Scrolls - you certainly won't regret it . . .

Fishy business

Fans of classic adventure games will love "Fish!", which is currently being developed by british adventure gurus Magnetic Scrolls. This time you will be playing a goldfish who has been living in his tiny goldfish bowl for some months now. As you can imagine this kind of life is pretty dull. All you can do is swim around in circles, which really isn't your idea of having fun. As it happens one of those two-legged creatures puts a little plastic-castle into your goldfish bowl and the castle promises to be a lot more fun and excitment than you can imagine, because inside you will find three gates. Each one of these gates leads you into a different world. In these worlds you actually become one of these strange two-legged creatures yourself (also known as humans). When you have explored every one of those three worlds and have found a certain key in each one of them, another gate opens, where a much bigger adventure awaits you, an adventure where you actually have to save the whole fish-population of an entire planet.

"Fish!" is a hilarious adventure and its plot should never be taken too seriously, although all the puzzles are built on a very logical foundation. The text and the comments in the game don't stop at anything and the game is constantly playing with words, sayings and english phrases which makes it difficult to understand for the german gamer, although you will be able to finish it without getting all the jokes. From what the programmers told us, "Fish!" will be slightly easier than "Guild of Thieves" which is primarily due to it being split into several mini-adventures, with each of the mini-adventures being a stand-alone game with no connection to the other parts of the game. "Fish!" should hit the shelves in August and will of course feature around 30 pictures, which are still in development, so we couldn't take a look at them when playing the game.
