Rhiannon: Curse of the Four Branches
This is a game produced by the Welsh company Arberth Studios, featuring a storyline based on The Mabinogion. played as a classic first person “point and click” adventure, with the world represented by pre-rendered, animated screens.

The game are also taken from a study of putative practical magic that Karen and Noel Bruton undertook a few years ago.
