About the Story"You play the role of a down-and-out Acme salesman, forced to work out of the Golden Dragon Inn, dangerously near Dread Unnkulia. Will you accumulate enough loot in this frightful backwater berg to turn your fortunes in your favor?" [author's blurb, from The (Other) TADS Games List version 1.2]
-- Carl Muckenhoupt
As the story progressed, and the PC got his prescribed portion of kicks and socks, I noticed that, instead of laughing, I started to feel pity for the poor guy. [...] Fortunately for Unnkulia 1/2, Mr. Leary's sense of humour (which, admittedly, remains up to the mark) finds other outlets than derision of the PC, so that the game had its enjoyable moments, after all. (Valentine Kopteltsev)

Adventions have used The Salesman Triumphant as a proving ground and a way of becoming familiar with the new version [of TADS]. Although not a very big adventure it fits in well with the gameworld which ardent Unnkulia fans are already familiar with and whets one's appetite for Unnkulia Zero. It achieves all these objectives as well as demonstrating Leary's off-the-wall sense of humour to players coming new to this great series.

A juvenile short Unnkulia game advertising Unnkulia Zero, February 3, 2016
After Unnkulia 1 and 2, the developers made a prequel called Unnkulia Zero, and released this game as a sort of advertisement for the new game. It hints at events in Unnkulia 0 and sets up the events of the original game. It is short and easy.
Like all the games, this is juvenile. You carry a condom made of swiss Cheez, you let a little girl (Spoiler - click to show)drown due to foolish beliefs,
It's not very large, and fairly easy. You find four keys, then you find some treasure and put it back.
If you want to try out an Unnkulia game, this is the easiest and shortest of the bunch.
