About the Story

"You're in a right proper mess now. That blasted dragonfly has gone and disappeared, and what's more, you're down to your last farthing..."

This game was released as an entrant in the Thanksgiving Speed-IF (2011). The "competition" version is available in IF Archive's SpeedIF section, in the Thanksgiving SpeedIF zip file, but release 2 is a bit more polished, so play that instead.

Release 2 was inflicted upon the world on Dec. 1, and adds cover art, a few fun responses to things Club Floyd tried in their run-through of the game, an AMUSING list, a bunch of bug fixes, some easter eggs related to the other Thanksgiving Speed-IF entries, a decently large handful of typo-corrections and description-tweaks, and a basic help system. And speaking of CF, I'd like to extend special thanks to Club Floyd for playing my game and the kind words they had to say about it!
