Find the Bed
by Jacob Mianecki

Find the Bed is a Z-machine interactive fiction game written with Inform 7 and is © 2010 by Jacob Mianecki.

In this thinly-implemented speed game, you play as someone in a scary house who needs to go to bed within TEN turns, otherwise you're gonna die.

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

Since we only have ten turns to win, we can't waste too many turns on non-essentials.

If you want to win in just five turns, skip all the examining, go directly to the Dungeon, and get into the bed.

> x mirror. w.

Th Living Room

> x third leaflet. s.


> x torches. s.


The skeletons and torture devices aren't implemented. Note that "sleep" doesn't help you; you must get onto the bed.

> x bed. enter bed.

*** You have won ***

In case you're wondering what you might've missed in the other rooms, here's a summary:

You can examine everything and take all the leaflets in the game, but otherwise, you can't do anything else. You can't flush the toilet; you can't break the mirror; you can't wear the clothes; etc. etc. Find another game to play if you want more functionality.

By the way, since the game was released with debug mode left on, and if you don't mind cheating, you can win in just two turns:

> gonear bed. enter bed.

*** You have won ***


You don't need to read or take any of the leaflets.
