Class Challenge
by Daniel Gunnell

Class Challenge is a Z-machine interactive fiction game written with Inform 7 and is © 2019 by Daniel Gunnell.

In this very small game, you play as a student at the Marsh Academy. Your English teacher wants you to write an essay about interactive fiction for your detention. You prefer to escape it.

This solution is by David Welbourn, and is based on Release 1 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.

It's unclear if the rest of the class is also in the clasroom working on the essay or not there because it's a detention and after school hours, but regardless, they are not implemented.
