About the Story

A demo text adventure by Christopher Lampton from his book "How to Create Adventure Games." A version for the TRS-80 MC-10 was made by Eric Underhill.

All your life you had heard the stories about your crazy uncle Simon. He was an inventor, who kept disappearing for long periods of time, never telling anyone where he had been. You never believed the stories, but when your uncle died and left you his diary, you learned that they were true. Your uncle had discovered a magic land, and a secret formula that could take him there. In that land was a magic ruby, and in his diary contained the instructions for going there to find it.
