For a lot of Kickstarter backers (including me), last week's release of Ron Gilbert's Thimbleweed Park was a long-awaited event. Obviously the game falls outside the scope of CASA, but nothing's going to keep me from giving a loving nod to Mr. Gilbert's second game, a little, classic something called Maniac Mansion. Which obviously (?) falls outside the scope of CASA, too, but I love the game and there are certain perks to being webmaster. So there!

Did you know that four of Infocom's titles were released in Japanese?
Neither did I, until one of our readers pointed me in the right direction. Among other oddities I also came across a version of Zork I for the Sega Saturn and Playstation - with sound and visuals. Nothing is sacred I guess :)

As always, thanks to all you hard working people out there - so many things updated this time around.

Enchanted Cottage, The


Plot

The old Sorcerer chuckles quietly to himself as he walks along the forest trail. With one hand on your shoulder and the other stroking his long white beard, he pauses to speak to you.

"Niki, this is your very last chance to become an Official Sorcerer. You have been on a government sponsored training course for the past 5 years and SHE who must be obeyed has cut out all your allowances. Therefore we are going to put you in the Enchanted Cottage for a spell, if you'll pardon the pun. Escape and not only will you gain your diploma but also a position in the Civil Services with an index-linked pension. No reward could be higher."

Notes

The Spectrum, Amstrad, C64 and ST versions were written with PAW, The Quill and STAC, respectively.
