This game begins at the decline of Camelot because of a curse that brought famine and drought in the kingdom. After having a vision of the Holy Grail covered by a silver cloth, Gawain, Lancelot and Galahad departed on a quest for the Holy Grail. However, they did not return. The player controls Arthur in his search for the missing knights and the Grail.

The graphics in this game are amazing and the use of dithered colors almost makes you forget that it uses the EGA palette. The great attention to details in the story and animations are incredible and the text parser works nicely. It understands almost anything you type.
