Finding the mouse
by James Dessart

Finding the mouse is a Z-machine interactive fiction game written with Inform 7 and is © 2009 by James Dessart.

In this tiny one-room game, you play as someone in their mostly-empty kitchen who wants to use their computer. But where's the mouse? Where did that thing go?

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