Dead Pavane for a Princess
by Emily Boegheim

Dead Pavane for a Princess is a Z-machine interactive fiction story written with Inform 7 and is © 2013 by Emily Boegheim. It was an entry in Ectocomp 2013 where it took 5th place.

In this tiny one-room horror story, you play as Maurice Ravel, noted composer, trapped in your own study by the zombie Claude Debussy. How will you stop him from reaching you and how will you escape?

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