Synopsis

Plot

The Mines of Qyntarr is an adventure into a bizarre underground realm where nearly anything can happen. You have volunteered to be the hero. You must recover the lost Orb of Qyntarr, then locate the invisible castle of the evil King Aken and kill the king.

Notes

The publishing history of the game is a bit unclear, but it is certain that it was intended to be part of a series.
Most likely the Apple II version was released in 1985 - this is corroborated by the fact that the game is mentioned in 1984 Sir-tech catalogue and that the Apple II disk label reads 1985 [more at MOCAGH].
The same catalogue bills this as "Book Three of the six-part USURPER Saga" and adds, "So why did we release it first? Ah-h... that's the first riddle".

In 1988, the game was published for the PC, this time as "Book one". Presumably Sir-tech had skipped the plans for two prequels at that point and simply released it as the first in a series.

But as the game was released at the end of the commercial text adventure era, no further games were ever released in the Usurper series.
