About the Story

This game, previously thought lost, has been recovered from the US Copyright Office.

Late 1980 Holtzman made a print-out of the source code and submitted it to USCO. During 2020 Kershenblatt starts a USCO retrieval process and in March 2021 he recieves a packet of source code from USCO.

Arthur O’Dwyer has transcribed this PDF and made patches to the ancient Fortran code to make it compile with modern compilers.

The game is a classic treasure hunt that borrows elements heavliy from both Crowther & Woods Adventure and Zork.
