Lowell's Paradise
by Jesse McGrew

Lowell's Paradise is a Z-machine interactive fiction game written with Inform 7 and is © 2008 by Jesse McGrew. It was a participant in the bouchercomp event.

In this very short game, you play as someone who accidentally falls away from their experiment and into a park. Professor Lowell explains you're in Lowell's Paradise, a bubble in space, but a giant broke the conduit back, so everyone's trapped. Just stay away from that rip in the sky, okay?

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

SPOILERS AHEAD. Reading a walkthrough prematurely can sometimes diminish one's enjoyment of an interactive fiction game. Please make an honest effort to play the game before reading this walkthrough.
