Emulation
This game works with: SheepShaver, Basilisk II,

'This game takes place in a land called Icia that has had some 700-plus King Edwards, who each are responsible for several million petty laws, numbered sequentially, which all combine to dictate every teeny action and thought of every subject of the land. King Edward LCCXI dies before his son is of age to ascend to the throne. The prince is expected to stay inside studying all the millions of laws and living according to a very rigid schedule until he is old enough to be king. He spends his time wondering how he will measure up to the greatness of his ancestors in promulgating new laws.

It is your job to bring the young prince to an understanding of the five things that make life worth living—music, food, nature, color, and love—and thereby break the evil hold of history on his young mind.

There are five characters in the game: the prince; the housekeeper and her daughter, the chambermaid; the stable lad; and Hope, a sprite or spirit who is the daughter of Orseppo, the wise witch who is behind the quest to enlighten the prince. By clicking on each character with the magnifying glass, you can read his or her thoughts in the particular scene, which all combine to tell the story and give you insight into their individual personalities.

One of your first tasks is to make the prince's breakfast, and before you can complete that, you are likely to find parts of the other treasures.

At the beginning, you must enter the pupil of an eye to access the courtyard of the house. Every time you pick something up that you can carry, it changes into a cursor, so you basically scroll through your choices of cursors to see what item you want to use and then choose one.' Four Fat Chicks

Please feel free to upload screenshots! Smile

Another thought: the content of the disk looks a bit like the Desktop file might be bad/newer than the files though it installs/plays when I tried it.
