Key & Compass presents:
Got Toast?
by Jim Fisher

Got Toast? is a Z-machine interactive fiction game written with Inform 6 and is © 2000 by Jim Fisher. It was a ToasterComp participant. The title of the game echoes the popular "Got Milk?" advertising catchphrase.

In this fantasy game, you play as a broke guy who had a disappointing birthday. Instead of cash, all you got was an old toaster from your eccentric great great grandmother. You were hoping for money so you could make a homemade breakfast of eggs, bacon, toast, pancakes, and syrup for your girlfriend as you promised.

This solution is by David Welbourn, and is based on Release 0 of the game.

Note that you can actually reach any section from any other section as long as you have the toaster, a slice of bread, and something to plug the toaster into. But if you're following my walkthrough, you visit the sections in the order shown.


Note: You can REMEMBER things. And you can die without warning.

Your Living Room

> open closet. x broom. ("Ezlwot")

> take broom. ezlwot. (It's flies!)

> remember grandmother. (She used to live in Salem.)

> remember Guile. remember Beth. remember broom.

There's nothing of interest in your bedroom or bathroom to the south; ignore them.

> e.

Your Kitchen

> x Beth. open breadbox. take bread.

> x fridge. open it. look in it. close it.

> x toaster. x dial. take toaster.

Okay, I need to explain how this toaster works. It does make toast, but when the toast pops, you'll be teleported somewhere else based on the dial setting. (But you can't teleport to your current scenario.) To use the toaster, you need bread and a working outlet.

I strongly suggest carrying the toaster while using it. While the toaster will teleport itself after you, the delay and subsequent acquistion of the toaster can be awkward. Carrying the toaster avoids this awkwardness.

> plug in toaster. put bread in toaster.

> turn dial to black. push lever. z. z. z. z.

When the toast pops, you teleport to...

Wizards Laboratory

You briefly meet an old man-in-blue who decides you're harmless then disappears.

> x frame. (It has the same settings as your toaster.)

Play around a bit with the frame:

> turn frame to medium. x frame. x lockers.

> turn frame to light. x frame. x hole.
