The Tiny House

by Dan Doyle III profile


About the Story

Christine comes home from work to her tiny house to find that her son and husband are missing. In searching for clues she discovers a spellbook and must learn various magical spells and go to several different lands to find out what happened to her husband and baby and to go to retrieve them.

This is the author's first work. The work includes some throwback to games such as Zork and Enchanter, including a similar spell system to enchanter, and the game taking place in a small white house, though all the puzzles are unique to the game, the game makes several references to other interactive fiction games. The game is intended to be humerous.

The game is in Glulxe format. The forgivness rating is cruel- it is possible to make the game unwinnable without realizing it until later. There is at least one event which can be potentially missed which is required to complete the game.

The game should be considered of moderate to long length- compare it to the length of Zork I rather than Suveh Nux or other competition games. The writing style is conversational, and it contains an "outfit" system, where NPCs react to you based on the clothes you wear, and a spellcasting system.

Any feedback or suggestions is welcome.
