From the official website:

"Future Boy! is an adventure game unlike any you've ever played. It's more than interactive fiction—it's an interactive comic book, combining the excellent writing, rich story, and sophisticated game world of the best classic interactive fiction adventure games with original animation, illustrations, and music, plus a host of unique and unforgettable characters.
Who is Future Boy? He's an honest-to-goodness, leaping-tall-buildings-in-a-single-bound superhero, and the masked, cape-wearing protector of Rocket City. And you...

...are his roommate. But when Future Boy is captured by self-proclaimed criminal supergenius Clayton Eno, who is left to save Rocket City and everyone in it, without the benefit of superpowers, using only quick-thinking and a knack for overcoming obstacles in unexpected ways? You, that's who.

Maybe you're curious. Where can you play this game? Is it available for Windows? For Macintosh? For Linux or BeOS or Palm or PocketPC? The answer is: all of the above. And more.

So check out some screenshots, watch the trailer, and play the demo.

Superheroing's his game. Adventure is yours."

I remember this obscure indie game actually getting a review in MacAddict magazine, and it seemed unique enough at the time that I bought a copy. It was distributed on CD-R's made on-demand by CafePress, and the packaging was a simple jewel case.

This is an .iso made from my copy that I bought way back then. Don't worry that it's not a .toast or .cdr file because this disc is in standard ISO9600/Joliet format, which means the disc image will burn or mount on basically anything.

The disc also contains many versions of the game engine besides for Mac: Win32, BeOS, Palm, PocketPC, Linux, Unix, and DOS.
