Hangar 22
by Rob O'Hara

Hangar 22 is a Z-machine text adventure game written with Inform 6 and is © 2011 by Rob O'Hara.

You play as an unemployed computer programmer who needs a job and some food, but not necessarily in that order. You wouldn't say no to some tacos. But will you say no to a job at Hangar 22?

This solution is by David Welbourn, and is based on Final Build 1.0 of the game.
