Cutthroats is an interactive fiction computer game written by Michael Berlyn and Jerry Wolper and was published by Infocom in 1984. Like the majority of Infocom's games, it was released for most of the popular computer platforms of the time, such as the Apple II, MS-DOS, Commodore 64 and several other platforms. It is Infocom's thirteenth game.
The game takes place in and around the fictional Hardscrabble Island. For centuries, Hardscrabble was a thriving seaport, but the local fishing industry died out in the 1920s. Most of the area's remaining population is an assortment of hard-luck types and people of questionable ethics.
