About the Story
You've found it at last - the chest containing the Treasure of Phlegm. Now, all you need to do is get it down from the tree. A cannon could help, if you can find the tools necessary to fire it...
Nominee - Leo the Lemming, Best Individual NPC - 1996 XYZZY Awards
17th Place - 2nd Annual Interactive Fiction Competition (1996)
A very silly game, in which you and your lemming companion Leo try to to open a treasure chest lodged in a tree. Involves water balloons, moose worship, and four ancient Mayan crayons. Small but difficult. Contains a hint menu.
-- Carl Muckenhoupt
One minute you're in Ancient Mayan Ruins, the next at the End of the World. Add a series of blatant, gratuitous rip-offs (the needle in the haystack from "Nord and Bert," the llama food and Restaurant at the End of the Universe from Douglas Adams' works) that don't fit in at all, and some thoroughly motivationless, illogical puzzles [...] and you've got a great contender for absolute rock-bottom last place.

This is a light, fluffy souffl' of a game, with not a single serious thought in its head or point of view to hammer home. It's fun, it's amusing, it's charming, it's easy to play and it has a built-in hint system if you're stuck.

This game was entered in one of earlier IFComps. You play a treasure hunter with a furry sidekick. You explore 5 or 6 different rooms with a variety of people and objects.
There is really no rhyme or reason to the game at all, but your pal Leo will give you hints. You explore moose lodges, ancient temples, and the end of the world, while collecting crayons.
Fun for fans of nonsense-surreality, or of good npcs.

The phone rings. Oh, no — how long have you been asleep? Sure, it was a tough night, but... This is bad. This is very bad. The phone rings.

You are standing at the edge of a barren field. A steady wind, having secreted away the topsoil, is now drifting sandy dirt across the plain. A scant sign of life here is a freshly-burrowed molehill on the ground. > MAKE A MOUNTAIN OUT...
