The Crystal Key is a graphic adventure video game published by DreamCatcher Interactive in 2000.

Story

The storyline is set in the future, where the protagonist is sent to another planet to investigate the source of a cryptic message from an evil alien race. The player begins the game having crash-landed on the planet and must explore the world, find a crystal key and portal which would help the player defeat the race and bring peace to the galaxy.

Gameplay

The gameplay is very similar to other games in the genre, such as Myst or Zork in that the player clicks around the environment to walk, pick up items, and manipulate tools.

Reception

The game received mediocre reviews, most of which were criticizing how much it mimicked other games of the same genre without introducing new gameplay. The game was released in a period when other adventure games, such as the new Myst sequels were being panned by critics for the same reasons.

The title did not sell very well, primarily because adventure games at the time were being phased out in favor of more graphically intensive first person shooter and role playing games.
