It was quite a surprise when the letter arrived informing you of your inheritance, especially since you had long forgotten about the distant relative who had left it to you. However the idea of nice little cottage in the country had a certain 'ring' to it and you were looking forward to seeing the place and looking it over.

For the next few days you busied yourself in the local library, reading up on the district of the country where the cottage was and learning as much as possible of the local history of the place. Though to be quite honest you were a shade surprised to find that very little seemed to be known about the hamlet of Little Hodcome.

Eventually the morning dawned of the day upon which you were to travel to Little Hodcome and after a light breakfast of coffee and toast you set out to meet the estate-agent, who had promised to await your arrival at the cottage.


Richard C. Hewison is credited for providing the poem, title, and inspiration for the game.

Not the first Zenobi release, but John's first published adventure. The game was written in 1985 and an early version was released in 1986 on the Your Sinclair issue 7 "listings" cassette that was sold by mail order in association with DigiTape. The Zenobi release dates from 1986/7; it features additional and enhanced messages & extra responses, compared to the DigiTape version.

Originally a Quilled Spectrum game. John Wilson returned to the game some thirty-years later and created a PAWs CP/M version for Amstrad and a DAAD edition for C64 & Atari ST.
