The game contains a zip file. The patch says to copy it into a Cairn directory, but where is the Cairn directory? (Mac using Boxer) Trying to unzip the file does nothing but create another zip. I can not figure out how to make this game work.

The CD contains both the DOS and the Windows 3.11 release. The DOS version is better.

An off-beat wild action/adventure RPG hybrid with some killer music.
Some have called this game so bad that it's amazing - hahahah
