How It Begins
Mabel the duck swallows the diamond ring that Elliott the Pig-Boy (that would be you...) is planning to give to his lady friend, Suzette. Mabel then flies away. The goal of the game is to get your diamond ring back -- and without killing the duck, because Granny Grabby will be very unhappy with you if you kill the duck.
The game has a complete set of built-in hints, including a three-level walkthrough. Among the incongruous perplexities (or perplexing incongruities) you'll encounter are a talkative troll, a vicious poodle, a surfboard, a jigsaw puzzle of the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, a wizard riding a coal-black dinosaur, a roomful of blindfolded savants, and an annoyingly playful otter.
