Dude, Where's My Scapula?
by Zachary Hodgens

Dude, Where's My Scapula? is a Glulx interactive fiction game written with Inform 7 and is © 2016 by Zachary Hodgens. It was entered in the First Quadrennial Ryan Veeder Exposition for Good Interactive Fiction where it took 7th place.

You play as Alex, an undead skeleton, who wakes up after a party in the graveyard to discover his entire shoulder bone is missing. You better find it and put it back on if you want to use your right arm ever again.

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