About the Story

You start outside a cottage at a lake somewhere in Sweden. You soon discover that there's a cave system under the cottage, housing weird devices and all sorts of strange creatures. The game is set in the modern day, but with many elements from fantasy and mythology.

This is a very early adventure game. The young authors (aged 10-14 at the time) started writing the game in the computer center of a university in 1977, and it should come as no surprise that they were heavily inspired by Adventure.

Stuga is the name of the original game, for DEC mainframes. The game was later released commercially for MS-DOS as the slightly reworked Stugan.

Ported from BASIC to Inform by Fredrik Ramsberg and Johan Berntsson.
