Synopsis

Plot

Queen Fafhara has become ill and fallen into a coma. The Jewelled Eye of Wossname is her only hope. It is said that the possessor of the Jewelled Eye will gain insight into all worldly knowledge. The possessor merely has to think of a problem and the solution will become readily apparent. With this power one could easily heal the Queen and return peace to the land.

But the Jewelled Eye is hidden. It must first be found. The queen's counsel dare not send anyone who knows of its power. Another champion must be sought - an idiot - someone unskilled in anything other than adventuring.

And so it is that you, Spodgeville Murphy, have been sent to find the Jewelled Eye of Wossname. After five months of searching, you have stumbled upon the Shrine of The Jewelled Eye of Wossname. All you have to do now is get the Eye and get back home.

Notes

A parody of Raiders of the Lost Ark, Zork and probably other works.

25th place (out of 37) in the 5th Annual Interactive Fiction Competition.

Extremely short, but amusing. Check the Full Score list.

A fun half hour. Well written. And I just love games that can be solved in a few moments but look good on my "solved games" list, anyway :)
