Shangri La is a Z-machine 5 interactive fiction game written with Inform 6 and is © 2002 by Caleb Wilson. It was a participant in the first Speed-IF Jacket event.
In this short surreal game, you play as a PEZ™ dispenser about to go on a date with a Red-Hot Ball'O'Fire™ in Candyland. At least, that's how it begins...
This solution is by David Welbourn, and is based on Release 1 of the game.
Yet another story about a bear who thinks he's a PEZ dispenser.
> about. x me. think.
> open head. x PEZ. eat PEZ.
> x date. give PEZ to date.
> kiss date. x date.
> x kid. x swingset. push kid. x kid.
Candyland disappears. You're now a grizzly bear in the Real World.
> x camper. x me. s.
> x camper. s.
> x camper. ravish camper. s.
> ravish camper.

From the response to ABOUT:
"Spectacular! ...if in a poorly-coded sort of way. And a definite overuse of the verb >RAVISH." -Sam Kabo Ashwell
"Bouts of cunning wordplay are frequent." --Atholbrose
"The best part about this game is the way the humourous personality of the ursine protagonist totally masks the fact that he cold-bloodedly kills everyone he meets." -John Cater
"I think this game proves that more games need to implement your head as an openable inventory object. I especially liked the treatment of the THINK command." -Jason Love
"I felt this game portrayed the PEZ Candy organisation in an inappropriate light, and only hope that proper legal proceedings will be taken." -Duncan Cross
"A breakthrough portrait of adolescent culture, it provides insight and greater understanding of a generation standing on the brink of adulthood." -Duchess
