Key & Compass presents:
You are a Turkey!
by Jacqueline A. Lott

You are a Turkey! is a Z-machine interactive fiction game written with Inform 7 and is © 2011 by Jacqueline A. Lott. It was a participant in the Thanksgiving Speed-IF event in 2011.

In this tiny minimalist joke game, you play as a turkey on a turkey farm. There's a feeling of dread in the air, but turkeys don't understand English.

This solution is by David Welbourn, and is based on Release 2 of the game.

SPOILERS AHEAD. Reading a walkthrough prematurely can sometimes diminish one's enjoyment of an interactive fiction game. Please make an honest effort to play the game before reading this walkthrough.



Turkey Farm

> about.

The player-character, a turkey, doesn't understand your commands. After five turns, no matter what you type, it's all over.

> x me. i. n. gobble.

*** Don't worry, turkey, I'm sure you were delicious! ***





This is the response to CREDITS or ABOUT:

This was written at the very last second for ClubFloyd's 2011 Thanksgiving Speed-IF session, inspired by olethros saying, "let's play You Are A Turkey!" while we were waiting for the games to be uploaded into Floyd. So before you go blaming me, consider first blaming Christos Dimitrakakis.

(Thanks for the inspiration, Christos!)

This is the second release, which includes some suggestions that were made when ClubFloyd played the game. Total programming time, including these bug fixes, is still under an hour. It is officially the most quickly-coded game I have ever released, and the only one thus far to be under the mythical Two Hour Speed IF requirement.
