Paparazzi is a Z-machine interactive fiction game written with Inform 6 and is © 2004 by EV. It took 6th place in the Commodore 32 Contest, where the storyfile entries could be no larger than 32K in size.

To quote this tiny game:

You belong to the paparazzi that hunt royal celebrities. Your employer wants you to take dubious snapshots of young princesses, and to find out when and whom they will marry. You haven't been successful in this, not yet.

This solution is by David Welbourn, and is based on Release 1 of the game.
