    To Hell in a Hamper is a 2003 text adventure game by J. J. Guest. To quote the official description:

    Professor Pettibone, eminent Victorian balloonist, has a problem. He can’t get it up. His balloon that is. If he can’t reach an altitude of 20,000 feet, and soon, both he and his mysterious travelling companion Hubert Booby will be burned to a cinder by an erupting volcano! But what is Mr. Booby concealing under his overcoat? Do all Ecuadorian peasants have BSc’s? And what, in the name of all that’s holy, is THE CURSE OF THE BLUE IBIS? All these questions, and several others, will be answered when you play “To Hell in a Hamper”, a one-room game by J. J. Guest.

    The game’s cover image is from a later date (2016?). With the three fonts by Archive Type (2005), it certainly evokes the Victorian ballooning era.
