The Unstoppable Vengeance of Doctor Bonesaw
by Caleb Wilson

The Unstoppable Vengeance of Doctor Bonesaw is a Z-machine interactive fiction game written with Inform 7 and is © 2016 by Caleb Wilson (writing as "Lewis Blanco"). It was an entry in La Petite Mort division of Ectocomp 2016 where it took 6th place.

In this tiny game, you play as Doctor Sargon Bonesaw. After months of research, you now know who are responsible for your humiliation. Their portraits hang on your wall of enemies. And tonight, they will die! You and your assistant César have planned your overwhelming vengeance, both horrifying and surreal, to the last detail! There is no way such a perfect plan could ever be thwarted.

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