About the StoryThis is a tribute game to the game "City of Secrets" by Emily Short. It is recommended to play "City of Secrets" first, since this game is a nostalgic trip back to the city, and therefore there will be spoilers. This game was an entry for The Emily Short Anniversary Contest 2020.

This game takes that same layout and room descriptions, but includes an 'Easter Egg Hunt' where you have to find 10 gems (and 1 super gem I didn't find) scattered throughout the layout of the game.
It does what it set out to well: encourage people to see and appreciate Short's setting and descriptions.
I had some difficulty guessing words (I'm used to Inform's synonyms like SEARCH being the same as LOOK IN), but the game had several hint systems, which was very useful.
