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 Genoa, Italy: your steam ferry arrived three days ago with 25 wooden boxes containing Queen Nefertari Meritmut's grave goods, a real treasure! They left Genoa 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 Queen's Footsteps is a text adventure set in Italy, with a refined blend between Art Nouveau and a bit of steampunk. Help Emilia find what happened to the Queen's treasures!

The game was released in 2020 as freeware for a large number of retro computing platforms. Collectible boxed editions with feelies were also published.

Another Emilia adventure, Two Days to the Race (2019), is included as a bonus on the disk. Enjoy!

Doesn't this upload break the 10-years-old rule and the "still being sold" rule? Wink
