About the Story

In this tiny game, you play as someone backstage at the XYZZY Awards ceremony. Eileen has sent you to bring out the celebrity presenter, Stephen Bishop, but he's been turned into a basket of mangoes! You need to find out who did this and change him back, if you can.

A Short Game From 2001, November 13, 2019
by Sobol (Russia)

Those planning to participate in the recently announced Emily Short Anniversary Contest might be interested in this 2001 mini-tribute - a SpeedIF by Admiral Jota. Emily is the villain of the game, disrupting the XYZZY Awards ceremony. There's a reference to Metamorphoses and some other in-jokes.

In reality, the next ceremony went without incidents (you can read the transcript here); Emily won the Best NPCs XYZZY for her Pytho's Mask.
