You live on a small seaport island called Hardscrabble -- hardly the hip place to be. Working as a professional scuba diver, you have the chance to salvage a sunken treasure from one of four shipwrecks, earn the respect of all the old farts and become wealthy beyond all imagination.

Cutthroats was the first Infocom game to come out in the famous gray box. Measuring 9" by 7 3/8" by 1", the package opens like a book to reveal the game manual, and the disk and package elements are packed in a re-closable transparent tray.
