Triple Bear Beer
by David A. Cornelson

Triple Bear Beer is a Z-machine version 5 interactive fiction game written with Inform 6 and is © 2001 by David A. Cornelson. It was an entry for SpeedIF Y.

You play as a gay actor in a monkey-man suit, on the set of the latest commercial for Triple Bear Beer. You just want to get this day over with and get back home to your boyfriend Phil.

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

Alas, I only managed a score of 4 out of 5.

*** You have won ***

Yes, it's guess which stereotypical gay mannerism that the author is thinking of. What about "tell girls about me"? "come out"? "swish", even? *sigh* You can tell a straight guy wrote this: he misspelt "Barbra".

Score and Rankings

I used the disassembler, TXD, to find out what the final ranking was, but I still haven't been able to figure out how to earn a full score.

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.
