Oth. is a Z-machine interactive fiction story written with Inform 6 and is © 2002 by Gunther Schmidl. It was a participant in the Speed-IF EXTREME event.

In this extremely short story, based on Shakespeare's Othello and extremely abbreviated to the point of absurdity, you play as Oth. You believe that Dessy, your wife, has been unfaithful.

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

*** WIN! *** No. *** DEAD! ***




Note that you cannot take or eat the Fd because Ew.

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.
