Leatherworld is a TADS 2 interactive fiction game and is © 2001 by Roger Carbol. It was an entry in the Speed-IF Third Anniversary event.

You play as the luckless Leatherworld employee who has to work through Halloween evening. And now the power's gone out and there's a weird "mooing" sound somewhere upstairs? Guess you'd better investigate that.

This solution is by David Welbourn, and is based on Version 0.1 of the game.

In brief: gather various things in a leather goods department store, and use them in a ritual to stop an evil demonic stuffed cow from killing you.

Ground Floor

First Floor

> x can. take it. u.

Second Floor

> x iron. take it. u.

Third Floor

> x knife. take it. d. d. d.

Ground Floor

Since you took the knife, the candle is now lit.

> take candle. d.


> x milk. take it. x fortune. take it. u. u. u. u. u.

Fourth Floor

The door to the fourth floor won't open until you've examined the fortune and taken all the necessary items (although the game doesn't quite check if you've dropped anything after you took it). You can't leave this floor once you're here.

> spray can. cut me with knife.

> put blood in milk. drink milk.

> z. (+1. Continue to wait, if necessary.)

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.
