ROWR! is a Z-machine interactive fiction game written with Inform 6 and is © 2000 by Gunther Schmidl. It was a participant in the DinoComp event.

In this short surreal game, it begins with you celebrating the new dekamillennium and getting lost by following a hottie in red. Venues will change abruptly, you'll briefly interact with an "EGG" and a prominently featured dinosaur, and then the game will end, saying this farce is finally over.

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.
