Generic Title is a Z-machine interactive fiction story written with Inform 6 and is © 2001 by Bowen Greenwood. It was a participant in the Speed-IF −1 event.
In this short short story, you play as J. Alfred Prufrock. Your creator, T. S. Eliot, wants you to fetch a thousand litres of tea so people will stay awake longer, read more of his poetry, and make him richer.
This solution is by David Welbourn, and is based on Release 1 of the story.
> x me. i. x Eliot. x chair. ask Eliot about anything.
> z. (continue to wait until Eliot sends you off for tea)
> s. s.
This game may be broken. I see no way to obtain tea, nor prevent Gustav and Katherine leaving the print shop together.
> x Gustav. ask Gustav about anything.
> z. (wait until Katherine enters)
> x Katherine. ask Katherine about anything.
> z. (wait until game ends)
*** You just weren't as smooth as Gustav. ***
A strong man, with an accent that might be French or might be Russian.
You should know this, too, Prufrock! Brown hair, arms white and bare, perfumed dress... but I digress. Go get'er!
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.
