How It Begins

Notable Features

  • Written as a joke game.
  • Extremely limited interaction. Besides "about" and the standard commands look, save, restore, undo, and quit, at each turn the player can only choose "1" to keep going, "2" to turn back, or "NO" to get an alternative version of what just happened.

Trivia and Comments

  • Parodied by Life on Gue Street (Chris Charla as Anonymous; Z-code), which takes place in the Zork universe and is considerably longer.
  • This was the second of two games Ian Finley entered in IF Comp 1999. The other game was the much better received Exhibition, which took 5th place.
