A juvenile short Unnkulia game advertising Unnkulia Zero, February 3, 2016

The Unnkulia games were a series of popular games that filled the gap between the end of Infocom and the beginning of the IFComp/XYZZY Award era.

After Unnkulia 1 and 2, the developers made a prequel called Unnkulia Zero, and released this game as a sort of advertisement for the new game. It hints at events in Unnkulia 0 and sets up the events of the original game. It is short and easy.

Like all the games, this is juvenile. You carry a condom made of swiss Cheez, you let a little girl (Spoiler - click to show)drown due to foolish beliefs,

It's not very large, and fairly easy. You find four keys, then you find some treasure and put it back.

If you want to try out an Unnkulia game, this is the easiest and shortest of the bunch.

You find enough objects of value to please the Innkeeper. The puzzles are logical and not hard. (Audrey A. DeLisle)

A freeware dungeon crawl written as an advertisement for the shareware game Unnkulia Zero (now available as freeware as well). In a bit of role-reversal, you play the Acme salesman assigned to the Valley King's realm. You must collect enough treasure to buy the local inn (thus creating the conditions in Unnkulia 1. A small and simple game, but enjoyable. Written entirely from the Acme point of view (cynicism, stupidity, and terrible taste).
