Key & Compass presents:
Four Days of Summer
by David Welbourn

Four Days of Summer is a Glulx interactive fiction game written with Inform 7 and is © 2017 by David Welbourn. It was a participant in the Speed-IF Potato Peeler event.

In this pleasant and silly game, spend the first four days of July with your friend David, a shameless author-insertion character who seems inordinately fond of making interactive fiction references.

This solution is by David Welbourn, and is based on Version 1 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.

Feel free to mix and match colours with peeled items until you're ready to continue. I'll assume you have red, white, and blue peels available for this last part. Once you put a colour onto the flag, it won't come off again.

*** Happy Fourth of July! ***
