Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it
by Justin de Vesine

Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it is a Glulx work of interactive fiction written with Inform 7 and is © 2011 by Justin de Vesine. It was a participant in the Thanksgiving Speed-IF event in 2011.

In this tiny minimalistic work that satisfies the premise of the speed-if in which it was entered, you play as someone in a walled quadrangle surrounded by all items in the premise. An exit leads east.

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

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

This is the response to AMUSING after you win the game:

Did you try BUYING the empty box that doesn't contain a dragonfly? How about when it's not empty?

Did you try wearing both the bow tie and the top hat?


Everything is in the walled quadrangle, you don't need any of it, and most of it isn't even that functional.
