About the Story"welcome to a new world.....
....a surreal world
> You are standing on a weather-worn cliff top over looking a pale blue lake.The lake is de-oxygenated giving it it's pale blue colour. All around you tall mountains rise from the ground giving a picturesque view. Wind tossed soil covers the ground where trees grow giving a deep and healthy colour. Leading away from the cliff are two well travelled paths; one leading to the east and the other to the west.

There is promise in a game like Surreal, but it's a promise largely unfulfilled. My advice to the author is to learn a high-level IF language (it's not that hard, really!), review basic grammar, employ proofreaders and beta testers... and write again!

A minimalist game made with a primitive parser. Locks and keys, July 16, 2017
This just seems quickly programmed in an old an bad language. I wonder if the author wrote it years before and spruced it up for the comp. It does have some nice Ascii art, and some fun ideas, but it needs a lot of work.
