Key & Compass presents:
Rainbow Bridge
by John Demeter

Rainbow Bridge is a Glulx interactive fiction game written with Inform 7 and is © 2017 by John Demeter. It was an entry in IF Comp 2017 where it tied for 37th place.

In this tiny game, you play as the angel Gabriel in an isolated cabin with your lover, a mortal man named Demeter. Because of an unexpected crisis, you must now return to the celestial plane. But to get there, you must first recharge your specter with all seven colors of the rainbow, if you can find them all.

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