Kids Shouldn't Have to Save The World
by Marnie Parker

Kids Shouldn't Have to Save The World is a Z-machine interactive fiction game written with Inform 6 and is © 1999 by Marnie Parker. It was an entry in the Speed-IF 6 event.

You play as a kid who got lost in the woods. You ran in there for cover when an meteor hit the roller coaster at the fair. You have so many questions. Was this an alien attack? Is your family okay? And where did you drop your hot dog?

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

Thank You to my Patreon supporters

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.
