Upwards and Onwards is a Z-machine interactive fiction game written with Inform 6 and is © 2003 by Jake Wildstrom. It was an entry in the Speed-IF 19 event.
You play as a human employee in Divine Investigations and the fallen angel Yechaedriel has a job for you. He was cursed by God after he lost a bet with the demon Shadiel, so now he's hoping you can go up to Heaven and find a way to get him a pardon.
This solution is by David Welbourn, and is based on Release 1 of the game.
For the opening bit, do what you like, but make sure you say "yes" when asked if we have a deal. Answering "no" is fatal.

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.
