Inside Outing is an isometric 3D arcade adventure game released by The Edge in 1988 for the Sinclair Spectrum, Amstrad CPC and Commodore 64. It was later also released for the Atari ST and Commodore Amiga with the title Raffles. Subsequent 8-bit reissues were also given this title. It was released in the U.S. by Epyx as Devon Aire in the Hidden Diamond Caper.[1]

Plot[edit]

An eccentric millionaire has died without leaving a will, instead secreting his money and gems in obscure places around his large house. His widow has hired a professional thief to find and retrieve these items. However the dead millionaire's strange pets have now overrun the mansion and do not take kindly to interlopers.

Gameplay[edit]

The player controls a thief, named "Raffles" in some versions of the game and "Devon Aire" in others, who must explore a large mansion looking for valuables, while avoiding the various hostile creatures that inhabit the house.
