Under Cover of Darkness is a Z-machine interactive fiction game written with Inform 6 and is © 2000 by Christopher Huang. It was an entry in the Speed-IF 9 event.

Someone has kidnapped Muffy and left an anonymous letter, saying she's being held at the bottom of these stairs. You don't know who did this or why, but you're going to rescue her.

Thank You to my Patreon supporters

This walkthrough is provided free of charge since I wrote this walkthrough prior to January 2015 when I began my Patreon account, and also because the work it's based on has less than fifteen locations (so I wouldn't have charged for it anyway). I've since reformatted this walkthrough to use my currently preferred style. I hope you enjoy it!

I'm still creating new walkthroughs! Larger ones too! Please visit my Patreon account if you're interested in helping me create more interactive fiction walkthroughs. I appreciate all the help I can get! Thanks again.
