A learning adventure that deals with the concepts of data processing and computer science. We slip into the role of a young assistant during an unusual archaeological excavation. Our uncle, Jaques Moreau, is the leader of a nine-headed team engaged with a recently discovered advanced culture, that already used ingenious calculating machines, codes and algorithms 7000 years ago. This civilization hasn't only left stone buildings, but also a number of artifacts, machines, the relevant language and a decimal number system, in which they laid down the knowledge of their culture. The archaeologists call the people Ba-it-anians, which corresponds to the computer-technical unit "byte" if you listen to the sound of the word. Our nameless hero - uncle always calls him 'my boy' - arrives exactly at the time in the excavation place, when some valuable artifacts disappeared and uncle Jaques deploys him to resolve the theft. Additionally an act of sabotage leads to burying one of the team members and the game becomes a whodunnit story. (From this review.)

The game plays in German. The ReadMe files imply that these CDs should be hybrid Mac/PC discs. This download is a Mac-only disc image.
