I think the putting-it-back game is Janitor (zero-sum game is related). Robin's game Portcullis really is a great game to try in this vein.

@Adam if it makes you feel any better, I just asked the members of my family with CMD about the term ‘disabled’ and they said they didn’t like it, and were open to suggestions for what other term to use. Searching “person with disability” vs “disabled person” on google shows a deep divide. So I thin...

Could you just implement a counter in a systematic way? Like “Every clothing has a number called the clothingcounter. The Clothingcounter of a clothing is usually 0. “

I finished playing through Life in a Northern Town. 3 very long twine stories, an inklewriter game, 28 short Instagram albums, and 3 blog posts.

It was all high quality, and was like binge-watching a drama on Netflix. Left me unsettled. I wrote a review of it for after the competition.

I'm taking the playing slow for now, giving myself more time to have fun. I played through Guttersnipe, and found it a fun puzzle game. I've played through most of Zeppelin Adventure, and have enjoyed not using hints. I tested the Gopher game, and it's actually what got me over my burnout from IFCom...

The problem seems to be having a new line in the code after a paragraph break or line break. Try putting the next line of code immediately following the paragraph break.

So instead of:

[something break]
New Text


[something break]New Text.

I've successfully completed a longstanding dream of mine: to integrate Inform 7 completely into another game. I've taken a basic Canvas html 5 tutorial game by Matt Hackett and integrated it with Inform 7. Text commands affect movement, and movement affects Inform 7! The game allows anything Inform ...
