Code Name Silver Steel is a Z-machine interactive fiction game written with Inform 7 and is © 2017 by Special Agent.

This is a short espionage game. Your freelance spy mission is to "Infiltrate MegaCorp, gain access to the data centre, download the database." You begin in MegaCorp's foyer, disguised as a repairman.

This solution is by David Welbourn, and is based on Release 3 of the game.
