About the Story

Well! It seemed that the house of Marcus Terentius Varro would be just a brief first stop in your joyful stroll through the city of Rome. But now it is clear that you will have to kill time in the courtyard while your father and Varro converse.

Varronis Museum is a puzzleless piece in which a cultured, upper-class girl devotes her spare time to explore every detail of a Roman house.

Release 1 was submitted as an entry to the IF Art Show 2007 (scenery category). The piece got an 'honorable mention'.

Release 2 tries to fix a lot of inconsistencies and bugs; it also includes a cover art for the work.

Games with accurate (present or historical) settings by Emily Short
I'm looking for works in the general spirit of The Fire Tower or 1893: they can be puzzly or not, have a story or not, but they should attempt to represent a real-world setting as accurately as possible, and in some detail.
