If you have not played a Davide Bucci adventure yet, you re really missing something. Created in the old style of Interactive Fiction games, Davide has created a number of adventures including his multi platform title, The Queen’s Footsteps.
Synopsis of the game: “
Today is August 27th, 1904. Nine months ago, you, Emilia Vittorini, joined the Italian Archeological Expedition in Egypt led by Ernesto Schiaparelli, the director of the Egyptian Museum of Turin. You are now back in Genova, Italy: your steam ferry arrived three days ago with 25 wooden boxes containing Queen Nefertari Meritmut’s grave goods, a real treasure! They left Genova by train, heading towards Turin, yesterday evening. While they were in transit, you were invited to a sumptuous reception organised by a wealthy art lover, Eugenio Collovati, count of Raligotto, but it would be hard to say that you appreciated the evening.
But the reception was yesterday: now, you must catch the train to Turin and check that the treasure arrived safely. I will be your eyes and ears. Good luck.”
The game uses the standard Interactive Fiction type games with a few special features including a means of exiting and restarting the game within the adventure.The Game synopsis from The Queen’s Footsteps website
