Grail to the thief is the first game from new developer Foralltoplay. As the name suggests, the developers made the game in an effort to produce something which could be accessible to a wide range of gamers.

Grail to the thief has the player taking on the roll of Hank Crank, a surly and definitely disreputable thief from the near future. Having won a time machine in a poker game, along with it's artificial intelligence Tedi (or time extraction digital interface), Hank embarks on a series of thefts across history, attempting to steal valuable historical artefacts that he can sell to pay his rent. , Not being one to think small, Hank's first target is The Holy Grail. With easily offended guards, a king with comparatively little sense of humour, sobbing trolls and revolting peasants, 6th century Camelot might just be more than Hank bargained for, particularly since only the virtuous may see the Grail and virtuous is definitely not Hank's natural state.

Grail to the thief is a remarkably easy game to pick up and play, even as compared to other Audio adventure games. All that's needed is to listen to the choices for each scene and select actions, or conversational responses from a list of numbers. The Z key can repeat the last story sequence, while X repeats the numeric choices on offer and spacebar repeats everything. while escape returns to the main menu.

The game doesn't save your progress, but is a comparatively short game, taking around an hour to complete, although since there are so many different branching dialogues and different responses in the game, it's highly worth replaying multiple times (if nothing else just for Hank's rather blunt force attitude to interacting with history). Though originally sold as retail, The game is now free to play on Steam and may be Found here[, while those who want a more regular download can simply donate 2.99 usd or whatever they think best to get access to freely downladable versions for Windows, Mac and Linux.
