About the Story

Try to get a secret item from your Uncle Xevion's house.

Catseye was written to see what could be done with a 10K (10240 byte) Z-Machine file. It uses a custom library called MinForm which reduces the parser down to the bare essentials. The idea was to see how much game could be packed into so little space - simulating the constraints the pioneering authors of IF had in the earliest days.

Straight-ahead Youthful Mystery-fantasy
