Jan Zlahoda, Steven Hsing and I have unfortunately stopped working on this game, but you can download a demo we released a few years ago. To run it, you need a 386 with a hard disk, 2 MB RAM and an SVGA video card.
Download the Cactus City demo now (476 KB, zip format).

|Dialogs are abundant in the game. For every question a person asks, you will often have more than two answers to choose from. It is also possible to quit a conversation in progress.|
|You will meet many people in the game. Pictured here are the county sheriff and a prisoner. You can ask the sheriff to allow you to talk to the prisoner.|
