Key & Compass presents:
The Fantasy Dimension
by Johan Berntsson

The Fantasy Dimension is a Z-machine interactive fiction game written with Inform 6 and is © 2023 by Johan Berntsson. It was an entry in PunyJam #3.

In this small game, you play as an office worker in a high-tech airlock. How did you got there? A speaker voice asks you to pick a dimension to travel to. "Home" is rejected, but "fantasy world" works. Enjoy your generic fantasy adventure!

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