Synopsis

Plot

You are Jack, the only son of a poor widow and you are on your way to the local market to sell the one thing of value that you own, namely the family cow. Up to the present time you have been an idle, lazy boy and our mother was very reluctant to entrust you with so important a task, but you pleaded to be given this opportunity to do better and she has allowed you to have your way. While saying goodbye she has explained just how important this sale is, for without a good price you will be forced to pack up and go.

Notes

Written by a teacher and aimed at primary school children, the game original came with a book of photocopied cartoon illustrations and a map; as well as teacher's notes.

Quilled text adventure aimed at children, straighforward, but non-trivial - has a (sort of) maze, some puzzles, objects, some freedom of movement (only in the latter part) and a narrative flow. Not bad, given its target audience.
