You know how Shireton is famous for its delicious bread? I bake that.
…well, I don’t know what I did, but there is a raider in my bakery now and I think he is murdering all of my customers. This is… bad? Yes. Bad.

The Baker of Shireton (review)
There are some other interesting features along the way, enough to make me wonder if I wasn't missing some bigger meta-puzzle.

"This game is...um...not what it seems on the tin..."
"As a baking simulation it fails....You are baking things, and people come, and you can sing a song, give a quest....then a raider comes and kills you. ... There's a lot more game there... The game is so much more once you get out of the bakery..."

Baker of Shireton, revisited (a second review)
Hanon has executed some neat programming tricks to allow the game to remember past game states after a restart. That's a difficult trick with Inform. The game also makes great use of variant font styles, to simulate human PCs participating in a multi-player online game.
