Only Your Home

by Law - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Heavily undertested due to events that I failed to foresee. Expect some actions to not quite work, and some rooms to be empty.

Note that this can run in any platform using an interpreter with the zblorb file, or the inbuilt one in index.html.

Now onto the things about it:
Events aforementioned were the one thing that nagged at me at the back of my head when I began developing this. It wasn't nice at all to be chased by a different deadline that would probably have been avoided had I just been doing less procrastination. As such, quite a bit of the rooms are empty, and there are exceptions where rooms are overcrowded. No doubt there is probably a large amount of bugs and other things that shouldn't be happening (like picking up fixtures), though I have tried to do some testing.

Going down stairs is an issue that I haven't been able to get out of the way so far, though 'go down' seems to work fine...

Overall, the result is this text adventure. There's still much I could have done, but I unless something is seriously broken, I don't expect to make any changes.

Nice work! This has to be up there with some of my favourite LD text adventures ever - 4/5

I'm not really a fan of text adventures but besides struggling to find the right commands, I kind of liked this one.

Struggling to find the commands, but still fun.

I like the idea of text adventures more than actually going through a text adventure! Nice work tho!

sorry, didn't mean to just paste that bare without explanation; there's an iron key that silently slips in there?

I love adventure games :) (http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-23/?action=preview&uid=10313 if you're tempted)

No post-mortem?

Okay I find some command but dunno what to do next, for example go out from the room? :)

Interesting, though it took me way too long to exit the first room...

I liked the mood, but I would have liked you to develop the plot more.

Think it might have bugged with the iron key? And the ending just left me feeling a bit disappointed... but I never was a fan of text games

Interesting game... text adventures are always confusing as you work out what commands do what, and I couldn't find the key, but fits the theme.
