I recall playing this on a shareware disc., October 15, 2013

Now this game has a special place in my heart. A small corner within my beating muscle that I know sounds odd and what not. But it is a wonderful holiday themed game. This is A Christmas Carol for the electric age and though this age has long since passed, I do enjoy playing these kinds of games. The games that were given out for all to play in demo's on the BBS's which for me is always a great little treat. This was a game that i recall spending hours upon hours playing and helped mold me into an IF player. A game that is taken from the pages of Dickens finest work, is something that should be rejoiced and shared among gamers today. This is a classic and should be put in a museum. Though it is basically written with a one maybe two word parser, it is still a gem that all should play. The version I played was a converted file from the days of the C64 and was ported to the PC.
