About the Story

The original version of this Swedish language adventure game was created on a Data General Nova minicomputer by Johan Berntsson in 1985 or 1986. It was later ported to the Commodore 64 in 1987. In 2007 this game was translated into English and Inform 6 by Fredrik Ramsberg. The Basic version was an attempt to write as full a game as possible in no more than three screenfuls of source code (a C64 screen is 40x25 characters, much of which is lost due to the way C64 Basic works). The Inform version is an attempt to make a port with the smallest Inform source code possible, as well as the smallest Z-code file possible. The Inform source code is about 2.5KB, while the Z-code file is 3.5KB.
