Part of the Firrhna Project by Kawa and Letrune, The Dating Pool is a point-and-click adventure game in the same vein as the classics from Sierra On-Line. In fact, it's built on the very same game engine as those classics.


* The classic Sierra UI
* Intricate 3D-rendered art

The Dating Pool has been found to run on virtualized MS-DOS/Windows systems, up to Windows 98, with no problems. However, your best bet is to get a copy of DOSBox and run it from there.
