THE TREASURE OF LIGHT: G RATING
Written by: Jason Fischer, Art by: Sanderson Gonzaga, Music by: Adam Richie
Search through a city’s secret past, and find an ancient treasure before it’s too late!
You have discovered an ancient document, a clue leading to the lost treasures of Colonel William Light, surveyor and architect of Adelaide. Throughout the years, clues to the treasure’s location have been hidden in the foundation stones of several historical buildings, forgotten until now. With your archaeologist friend, Rhonda, you set out to find Light’s treasure, but there’s a catch – the ruthless tomb-robber Percy Graves is hunting for it too, and he’s hot on your heels. Will you find the treasure in time, or will it be stolen from under your nose?
This adventure starts at the Adelaide General Post Office (Cnr King William and Franklin streets)
Nominated for the 49th Annual AWGIE Awards 2016.

You knew it was a bad idea helping the Professor with his experiment—a hunk-of-junk time machine that’s now sending you backwards and forwards through Adelaide’s crazy history! You find yourself running from policemen and sergeant-majors, or stuck in the middle of riots and earthquakes, with no way of getting home. As the Professor tries to fix your machine, you’ll need the help of a lot of quirky characters to survive Adelaide’s past. But will you be able to get back to the future in one piece?
This adventure starts at the Town Hall in Adelaide’s CBD.
