Ultimate Escape Room: IF City
by Mark Stahl

Ultimate Escape Room: IF City is a Glulx interactive fiction game written with Inform 7 and is © 2017 by Mark Stahl. It was an entry in IF Comp 2017 where it took 47th place.

You play as someone who is playing a real life "escape the room" game. This one is called "The Wizard's Rainbow". You start in a white room containing a white chair and no obvious exits.

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