Sfinx

Sfinx is an adventure game by LK Avalon that was released in Poland in 1997. In the game, a pair of school kids are told by a professor that an alien spaceship has landed somewhere, so they set off to find it.  It was released as freeware on September 18, 2014, and is available at the ScummVM downloads page for use with the adventure game interpreter ScummVM. It is available in its original Polish language, and, for the first time, an English translation is available as well.

Sfinx is now supported by ScummVM, a program designed to let 2D adventure games run on multiple platforms. With ScummVM, Sołtys now runs on modern versions of windows, as well as Linux, Mac OS X, and many consoles such as Dreamcast, Wii, PlayStation 2, and PlayStation Portable.
