Quote:
For PC/Mac, Single-player: Zed is a graphic adventure game from artist Chuck Carter (Myst, C&C: Red Alert, Babylon 5, NASA).
Explore the imagination of a dying man. Interact with Dali-esque dreamscapes and a kaleidescope of memories as his light fades.

How big is Zed’s world? Depending on the player, Zed will take between 3 and 5 hours to complete.

What influenced Chuck’s vision for Zed? Dozens of artists. To name a few, Dave McKean, Shaun Tan and John Hughes. Also five decades
of his own vivid dreams.

The dreamer is confused by your presence. He can help or hinder your progress by putting challenging obstacles in your path - he needs your help but at times doesn’t understand why you are there.

The world of ZED is filled with exotic places of the imagination. As you learn his story, the truth about his past and his final masterpiece is revealed in the dreams you explore; A personal creation of one man’s disintegrating mind. Help the dreamer fulfill his final task and unleash ZED to the world.

The realms of ZED flicker between the edge of reality and that of fiction. You'll explore eccentric coastlines, mechanized landscapes, and secretive forests.


These worlds were built by the creative mind of acclaimed artist Chuck Carter If you've ever read National Geographic, seen a NASA press release, or watched Babylon5, there's a high chance you've experienced his work. However, world-building in video games is where he spent most of his life. From the groundbreaking environments of Myst, through the cinematic battlefields of Command and Conquer: Red Alert, to the futuristic terrain of Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2, Chuck has helped produce over 25 games throughout his career.




Happy Gaming!
