The Dragon Will Tell You Your Future Now

About the Story

The things they say about dragons can't really be true right? Maybe it was a bad idea to come here, maybe the only future the dragon holds is the one that ends with you in it's jaws tonight! Ridiculous, speciest thoughts; dragons have been part of our society for years. The dragon is a renowned fortunist running an entirely legitimate business. It's perfectly reasonable that you were only allowed to come here alone, in the dead of night. It's just nerves, you're excited to see the dragon. This will be fun. It's going to be fun.

The Dragon Won't Tell You Anything, October 3, 2017
by Sobol (Russia)
You were going to meet a dragon, but you're stuck at a door which won't open. I looked through the code - seems like there's no way to get in. So, it's either unfinished or an unwinnable joke game (having one among the entries feels now like a good old IFComp tradition). Probably the latter. There were a couple of mildly amusing moments, though.

In 2006, Theo Koutz entered an IFComp game called Sisyphus, where you roll a stone up a hill and it rolls down again. It was a troll game that was smooth and polished.

This is essentially the same game, but with shiny new polish. You have to open some doors, but you can't. Replaying this, though, I found that I actually enjoyed the writing, perhaps more than any other game in the comp.

So this was pretty fun, despite the author's intentions.
