B+ from Just Adventure

At the very top of your seemingly benign keyboard is a row of function keys. On a standard PC, they number F1 to F12. Key F13 doesn't exist. Even on a MAC, the F13 is an unassuming little key that simply captures a displayed screen. What if an F13 with some real potency appeared? Something menacing, a merger of technology and terror brought straight to your desktop. Would you dare strike such a key? A provocative yet unanswered question for horror fans and computer users. Unanswered until now...

Ctrl, Alt, ...Shiver

The master of horror goes interactive. F13 is presented in an imaginative and easy to use format. It is an interactive time-killer and exceptional desktop companion filled with bone-chilling realism and delivered in distinct 'Stephen King' style.

Original Stephen King work: Everything's Eventual

"Everything's Eventual" is a suspense filled, quick-read novella that offers a rare opportunity to own a title that has never been published in book form. It's presented with a full selection of illustrations and eerie audio files. A "Digital Bookmark" is included and allows you to keep your place in King's gripping tale.


Mini-Games require little practice and can be jumped into with relative ease. Through Mini-Games, computer users everywhere can enjoy a quick and entertaining interactive experience:

Bug Splat: Roaches hatch, multiply and scurry across your computer screen. Grab a fly swatter, and squash them into a disgusting gooey splat.

No Swimming: Not just your usual cyber-fishies! Your tank's infested with ravenous Piranha! Fortunately, you've got a variety of "livestock" to serve up to these swimming meat processors.

Whack-A-Zombie: Zombies are climbing out of their graves, in search of human flesh. It's up to you to keep them in check. Grab your shovel and whack 'em back into the afterlife.

Screen Savers

The Master of Horror has taken over your monitor, banishing the standard fare of flying kitchen appliances and celebrity mug shots to a murky cyberworld.

Murder and Mayhem: A homicidal maniac makes his mark on a charming Victorian home and keeps the funeral parlor and moving company buzzing with business.

Frightware Trivia: You think you know all there is to know about Stephen King? Brush up on your "King" lore with Frightware Trivia.

Evil Genius At Work: A lively caricature of Stephen King types away at the corner of your monitor, generating a real-time story with atmospheric sound effects.

Stephen King, The Works: A selection of Stephen King's published titles and summaries spontaneously appear in abstract format, reminding you of each haunting tale.

It's Just Lightning: The creepy clown sitting dormant among the cobwebs seems to move with every flash of lightning.

Creature Under My Bed: A calm image of someone in a deep slumber under the blankets changes to a nightmare as mischievous happenings fill the room.

Terror Eyes: Multiple sets of eyes lurk on a flesh colored background watching your every move.

Desktop Themes and More: F13 offers a selection of 'Frightware' wallpaper themes and a full set of creepy audio files.


Windows 95/98/Me: Pentium 166MMX (P200 recommended), 32MB RAM (64MB recommended), 2MB graphic card DirectX compatible, high color, SVGA with 512K RAM, 200MB free hard disk space (330MB for full install), 4x CD-ROM drive, sound card.

Just Adventure by Randy Sluganski

""Everything's Eventual" is the typical King teenage angst narrative, but with a twist. It is only available on F13, and the reading is enhanced by illustrations and eerie audio files and music. Imagine for a moment how cool it must be to devour a King horror novella on your monitor in a darkened room with accompanying sound effects and music. This alone is worth the price of admission. But much more awaits the discerning King addict.."

"The coup-de-grace, though, is the screensavers. A few are so lengthy that you would think you were viewing a mini-series on your monitor. "Murder and Mayhem" is one of the better screensavers ever made. It actually has a storyline that can be followed, and the ending is chilling. Others that will make the hairs on your neck stand up are "Creature Under My Bed" (don't let your children see this one!) and "It's Just Lightning" (it will be a long time before you enter a dark basement!). For the Stephen King buff, "The Works" is a compilation of all of King's published titles, and "Frightware Trivia" a constantly changing challenge of Stephen King lore. The excellent screensavers and novella easily raise F13 above any other utility program on the market today."
