The Search for Freedom combines the best features of all
my favorite RPG games, including Pool of Radiance style combat, Bard's
tale type puzzles and spell system, and plenty of action. Complete Soundblaster
sound effects and music are included, as well as 22 dungeon levels, 4 towns
and 2 worlds to explore, and over 100 monsters each with their own special
abilities will keep you on your toes. Interact with dozens of NPCs as well.
from the game
beyond your wildest dreams as you explore the living realm as well as Aegea,
the realm of the dead
and fascinating creatures in your journeys
lies behind this mysterious Portal?
of all shapes and sizes, living and dead!
Enter combat with fierce monsters,
where you'll see arrows fly, fireballs explode, and dragon's breathe -
many monsters have special unique abilities such as invisibility, walking
through walls, and gazes of stone - master over 50 spells as well
first-person 3-D perspective views as you explore towns and dungeons
will take you to the mysterious realm of Aegea, where the sea is of blood,
and the stench of death fills the air
Defeat your nemesis,
Kamazol, or the living world will be lost!
Be wary, for
danger lurks around every bend!
The Search for Freedom was programmed entirely in Borland
Turbo Pascal 7.0, and the current version, 1.3, released Jan. 2004, is
available as Shareware. Registration is $10.00 (or more, if you like) with
details within the game, or email me for details.
A hint book is also available, free to registered users,
else $10.00, also exclusively from myself.

So I'm sure by now you're extremely anxious to download
and play The Search for Freedom... well, here it is, direct from the source.
The game may be found on numerous FTP sites, however, this page will always
contain the most recent version available. Currently this is v1.3, and
chances are there won't be any more bug fixes. If so though, check here
have downloaded the game...
05/07/2020: A note to those of you trying to
install the game under DOSbox and having trouble. The installer assumes you have a C
drive and will not work if you do not. If you want to for example install on drive E,
then drive C and D must also exist before running the installer. Once the game is
installed it does not matter any more. Sorry for any inconvenience but when I wrote
this it was highly unusual to skip drive letters!
04/14/2019: Due to a limitation of DOSbox,
registered copies of The Search for Freedom will still appear unregistered to
DOSbox. To remedy this, simply download this updated version of TMAIN.EXE
(146,743 bytes) and overwrite the existing one in your game directory. Then reload
the game under DOSbox and it will recognize that the game is registered. Sorry
for any inconvenience this may cause.
10/14/2004: Search for Freedom available
on CD for first time ever! Now you can own a personalized copy of the game.
The first 100 copies are individually numbered, and signed by the author!
For just $19.95 you get the CD (see image above) containing the full game, hint book,
online manual and as well I've thrown in a bonus - the .D64 image of the
Commodore 64 prequel to the game, Quest of Kings (for use on emulators).
To order your copy today, just send me an e-mail.
01/24/2004: Released v1.3. The only
change is that there is no longer a dependency on CT-VOICE.DRV for sound
effects. To get full DOS sound support under Windows 2000/XP download
VDMSound (search Google for it).
02/28/2002: Released v1.2b. The only
change is that the bug in the Turbo Pascal 7.0 compiler has been fixed!
This means that Search for Freedom will now work on machines of any speed!
No longer is it limited to machines with speeds of 300MHz and below. About
time is all I can say..
04/29/1996: Search for Freedom fans
may be interested in the 'prequel'. If you have a Commodore 64
Emulator then you can try it out. It is called Quest of Kings,
and is a simple 4-level dungeon game, with Bard's Tale-style combat
and puzzles. This game is freeware of course, so check it out here.
02/18/1996: Due to your input, I have decided to make available
a "patch" for the first dungeon, so that you may return to the
stairs on level 2 and return to town, before defeating Macabath, so you
may train your characters. If you want the extra challenge, then you don't
need this. Simply overwrite the old file with this one by the same name,
in your game directory:
