Baking with Lizzie
by Adri

Baking with Lizzie is a Z-machine interactive fiction game written with Inform 7 and is © 2017 by Adri. This game was written for the Short and Sweet Jam.

In this small one-room game, you play as a domestic raccoon named Lizzie. You want to bake some cookies for your friends before they arrive, but first you need to find the recipe card.

This solution is by David Welbourn, and is based on Release 2 of the game.

SPOILERS AHEAD. Reading a walkthrough prematurely can sometimes diminish one's enjoyment of an interactive fiction game. Please make an honest effort to play the game before reading this walkthrough.




Start by examining what's visible.

> x me. (You're a raccoon.)

> x timer. x oven. x plate.

> x fridge. (Has magnet, hooks, apron, potholder, towel, crate on top.)

> x magnet. ("I ♥ baking!")

> x hooks. x apron. x pocket. x soap.

> x potholder. x towel. x crate.

> x cabinets. x table. x stool. x stream. x lamp. x rug.

Next, find the recipe card and the baking sheet.

> look under rug. take card. read card.

> open oven. take sheet. put sheet on table. close oven.

Deal with the fridge (top, inside, and side):

> look in crate. take crate. (Too far!)

> move stool to fridge. get on stool.

> x crate. x bowl. x mug. take all from crate.

> down. move stool.

> open fridge. take all from fridge. close fridge.

> x milk. x butter. x egg.

> wear apron.

Let's see what's in the cabinets. If you like, you can also taste most of your ingredients before using them, but this walkthrough will be content with just examining them.

> open cabinets.

> x brown sugar. x white sugar. x vanilla.

> x chips. x flour. x soda. x salt.

Turn on the oven and melt the butter:

> preheat oven.

> unwrap butter. put butter in mug.

> touch oven. put mug on oven. (It's curved and can't support it.)

> put mug on hot plate. turn on plate. (It's not working?)

> touch lamp. put mug on lamp. (The butter melts.)

Put all the ingredients into the bowl:

> put butter in bowl.

> put brown sugar in bowl.

> put white sugar in bowl.

> break egg. (The egg goes into the bowl.)

> put vanilla in bowl.

> put chips in bowl.

> put flour in bowl.

> put soda in bowl.

> put salt in bowl.

You automatically mix the ingredients into a dough with your hands. Complete the cookie-making steps:

> roll dough.

> open oven. put pan in oven. (You auto-close the oven.)

> set timer to 15 minutes.

Do some clean-up while waiting for the cookies to bake.

> take soap.

> wash bowl. wash mug. wash hands. wash table.

> put soap in pocket.

> take potholder.

> z. (Repeat waiting until the timer dings.)

When the timer dings:

> open oven. take sheet. (with potholder)

> x cookies.

> take towel. put towel on table.

> put sheet on towel. turn off oven.

A duck and a rat arrive soon after the cookies are out of the oven.

*** Yay! Your friends have arrived, and there are cookies and milk for everyone! ***
