Trapped in a Small Room is a Z-machine interactive fiction game written with Inform 7 and is © 2010 by Anthony.
In this small, simple, semi-surreal escape game, you play as someone in darkness. You're carrying a lemon and a flashlight with a wire sticking out of it. Once you get some light, escape from the small room.
This solution is by David Welbourn, and is based on Release 1 of the game.
