The Day I shot Hitler! is a Z-code interactive fiction game written with Inform 7 and is © 2007 by Taleslinger. It was a participant in the New Year's Speed event. It is also the first installment of the Alex and Paul series.
You play as Alex, a young gay man attending a New Year's Eve party at your boyfriend Paul's. Paul would just love to host a perfect party, but he keeps running into unexpected problems, like this mouse in the bowl of eggnog. Fortunately for Paul, you're good at solving problems.
This solution is by David Welbourn, and is based on Release 2 of the game.
This game is task-driven. You will complete four tasks in order.
