The Erebus and the Terror - sfernald - 48 Hour Compo Entry
This is a work of interactive fiction. In other words, no graphics and sounds, just text, like a novel.
The Erebus and the Terror is a science fiction thriller set on the prospector ship Erebus. If you like reading science fiction stories or watching science fiction movies or playing survival horror games, you might enjoy it.
Please let me know what you think. I am going to withhold providing the source code or any hints until the last day of voting. I really want to see if anyone can solve this one on their own without cheating.
I know it's hard to commit to the time and effort needed to play an IF game when most submitted games can be evaluated in a couple minutes. So play all the other games, with their exciting graphics and gameplay, and then later when things have died down and you feel like something meaty, come by and give this one a try!
