Description of Portal

Portal is a unique "interactive novel" that tells one of the best sci-fi stories ever. Returning from a failed 100-year voyage to earth, you find that that everyone has mysteriously disappered. Then you discover HOMER, a biological computer that alone holds the link to the past and conduit to the future. Together, you and HOMER must discover the doorway to humanity before you're stranded forever.

"Puzzles" (in the loosest sense) involve accessing various databases to uncover more information. Highly recommended, especially to sci-fi fans.
