The Eamon PC conversion by Paul Gilbert is a port of the standard, Apple-based Eamon adventure game system to a PC platform. Gilbert released the port in 1995.


Gilbert's PC port features two adventures:

Number Title Author
1 Main Hall/The Beginners Cave Donald Brown
2 The Lair of the Minotaur Donald Brown

PC Eamon Museum

Eamon Deluxe developer Frank Black included Gilbert's port of the game in his "PC Eamon Museum", a collection of various PC-based Eamon projects. Black's notes:

As far as I could tell, the Front Desk in Paul Gilbert's port doesn't provide an option to list existing characters. Since all of the programs are in compiled format, there is no way to know what the structure of the characters file is, nor can you break in and modify your character. Also it does not seem to save your character when you exit so a new one has to be created upon each visit.

Unmodified copies of the source files which were used to construct this exhibit can be found in the Frank Black Productions Archives at www.eamonag.org.

The museum collection includes Gilbert's Main Hall and the two ported adventures: The Beginners Cave and The Lair of the Minotaur.
