Spitting Crumbs
by Duncan Cross

Spitting Crumbs is a Z-machine interactive fiction game written with Inform 6 and is © 2000 by Duncan Cross. It was a ToasterComp participant.

In this short surreal game, you play as someone who has a piece of bread but would prefer to eat some toast. With some butter and jam on it, if you please. Expect many explosions.

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