- "Exile offers an easygoing point-and-click interface; pleasant,
if unambitious, graphics; ... literate prose; and a vast scope."
- PC Games, Nov. 1996
- "From the top of its head to the tip of its toes, the game
shows a lot of class." - Computer Games Strategy Plus, Dec.

the top of their download list." - Computer Player
- "4 out of 5 joysticks." - Inside Mac Games Magazine,

Vogel's adventure game offers commercial-quality graphics, cool
puzzles to solve, and a slew of characters to interact with."

Exile: Escape From the Pit is the first game in the Exile trilogy,
which takes place in the strange subterranean world of Exile. Exile
is populated by the misfits and malcontents of the surface world,
people who were forever banished to the underworld for being too
strange, or too antisocial, or having too many incorrect opinions.
This is the fate you have just suffered, and it is up to you what
to do from here. Will you try to escape the strange prison of Exile,
will you try to gain power and save your fellow exiles from the
monsters that threaten them, or will you try to gain revenge on
the Empire that cast you below? It's up to you!
Exile is available in two different forms here. The first file is
a .sit archive (about 1.7 MB), which your browser may be able to
decompress on its own. If it can't, or if you get Corrupt Archive
errors, download the binhexed version (.hqx), which is larger, but
should be decodable by your browser. If you still have problems
see How to unpack Mac archives ...
for more information.
