Work of interactive fiction
by Dan Schmidt
.edu>. Won second place
at the Fifth Annual Interactive Fiction Competition
). `For a Change' is written in an odd fantasy
version of English
; the language
is very poetic
at times. The opening line is ``The sun has gone. It must be brought. You have a rock.''. The opening scene:
Under the High Wall (on the resting)
Sweetness fills the shade of the High Wall to your east. Under this sweetness lies a small expanse of fod. A mobile releases mildly to the west; far in that direction a tower proudly plants itself, while the ground rises more slowly to the south and relaxes to the north.
Spread on the resting is a guidebook.
Sleep gradually departs from your eyes. A small stone has been insinuated into your hand.
The language continues this way throughout the game
. Your goal
is to destroy the High Wall, bringing light to the countryside
that is now in its shade
