Deep Breathing
by Admiral Jota

Deep Breathing is a Z-machine interactive fiction game written with Inform 6 and is © 2006 by Admiral Jota. It was a participant in the Speed-IF Gruff event.

In this very abbreviated version of The Three Little Pigs, you play as someone tall and furry, with immense lungs and an empty stomach. You have tracked your quarry to a shack in the woods. There is, of course, a mailbox.

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.
