Coffins is a Z-machine version 5 interactive fiction story written with Inform 6 and is © 1998 by Christopher Huang. It was the only entry in the Speed-IF 1 event.

In this brief tale inspired by Edgar Allan Poe, you play as a mortician. Two nights ago, you murdered your wife, Ligeia, so you could marry your mistress, Rowena. Now you and Rowena stand in front of Ligeia's coffin.

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




> x coffin. x Rowena. x flask. open coffin. x Ligeia. x Rowena.

> kiss Ligeia. kiss Rowena. ask Rowena about Ligeia.

> Rowena, give flask to me. x flask. give flask to Ligeia. z.z.z.

Thank You to my Patreon supporters

This walkthrough is provided free of charge since I wrote this walkthrough prior to January 2015 when I began my Patreon account, and also because the work it's based on has less than fifteen locations (so I wouldn't have charged for it anyway). I've since reformatted this walkthrough to use my currently preferred style. I hope you enjoy it!

I'm still creating new walkthroughs! Larger ones too! Please visit my Patreon account if you're interested in helping me create more interactive fiction walkthroughs. I appreciate all the help I can get! Thanks again.
