Garry has been hard at work uploading info on Alan games, which means that our Alan selection has been substantially upgraded.

And as a heads-up for C64 enthusiasts: the ever-industrious Fredrik Ramsberg has ported a number (30-something) of Inform games to D64-format, so you can play some of the more modern titles on your favourite machine. I've tested a few of them, and it just works really well. More on his website.

Miser, The


Plot

Down through the years one man's name has conjured up great visions of cold-heartedness towards others and a flagrant disregard for the suffering of fellow human-beings... that man's name was Ebenezer Scrooge.

A lonely and solitary figure of a man, he dwelt in his uncared-for house surrounded by nothing more than memories and dust. With just the occasional cry of... "Humbug!" to rent the silence, he went about his daily life unconcerned with the plight of others. That is until the arrival of the ghostly form of his late partner Jacob Marley at the foot of his bed one dark and fateful morn. From then on, the man who was the epitome of meanness was to undergo a change of character the likes of which was never to be seen again.

This is a "lighthearted" tale of this man and of his endeavours to perform something that was contrary to his beliefs... Namely a Good Deed. In fact not just one good deed, but twelve of them!

Return with us now to those "thrilling days of yester-year" and relive the struggles of Scrooge as he sets about his task. A task, which in his own eyes, was almost impossible. After all, it is bad enough that he should have to perform such deeds, but in order to do so he must first discover what the deeds actually are and then how to perform them!

Notes

Inspired by Dickens' A Christmas Carol.
