Service With a Smile
by Josh Giesbrecht

Service With a Smile is a Z-machine interactive fiction game written with Inform 6 and is © 2000 by Josh Giesbrecht. It was entered in the Speed-IF 13 event.

In this miniscule one-room game, you've been waiting twenty minutes just to get seated at this busy Chinese restaurant. How much longer should you wait to be served?

This solution is by David Welbourn, and is based on Release 0 of the game.



Chinese Restaurant

Short game, even by speed-IF standards.

> x menu. x statue. take all. stand. (+42)

*** You have won ***

Sorry, but there really isn't anything else you can do. Waiting won't help you, nor waving the menu, nor praying or magic words, and the waiters aren't even implemented.



You can't actually interact with anyone in this miniscule game.



In that game you scored your-score out of a possible 42, in few turns, earning you the rank of ranking.


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.
