EPISODE 2: Revenge of the Mutant Spiders
by Adam Biltcliffe

EPISODE 2: Revenge of the Mutant Spiders is a Z-machine interactive fiction game written with Inform 6 and is © 2000 by Adam Biltcliffe. It was an entry in the Speed-IF 11 event and the second part of its six-part story.

You play as someone tasked with conveying a dead body through this house's torch-lit upper passageways. (Part 2 of a 6-part series.)

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

Upper Hallway

This is part two of a six-part series; start with Fun and Games.

The transition from that game to this one isn't entirely smooth. You can now carry the body with ease, and both the protagonist and the body are now nameless and undescribed, but perhaps more jarring is that we seem to have gone from a normal house in suburbia to some gothic house of horrors.

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.
