worm is a Z-machine interactive fiction game written with Inform 6 and is © 2000 by Gunther Schmidl. It was an entry in the Speed-IF 14 event. Technically, the story is untitled; we only call it "worm" because the storyfile's name is worm.z5.

A gentle rhyme. Poetic verse. A pleasant time? Or something worse?

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

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.
