About the Story

In this extremely short one-room demo game, you play as Jack Winklebee, an aspiring hero in Fairyland. You've traded your cow for some magic beans, a trowel, and a magic watering can. Now it's time to find out what these magic beans do.

Baf's Guide

A brief one-room fairy-tale-based Textfire demo with a twist ending. You have been warned.

A short joke game about jack and the beanstalk, June 5, 2017

The Textfire Demo 12-pack was released on April Fool's in 1998, claiming to be demos of an upcoming commercial studio called Textfire.

In this demo, you plant the magic beans, but the game ends right around there. There was a surprise twist that I thought was pretty good.

A weaker textfire game, but with some fun surprises.
