A shortish, buggy game about wandering around your own house, July 30, 2016

This game seems like it was written quickly, not beta tested, and by someone with not much inform experience at the time.

It is riddled with bugs and spotty implementation. (Spoiler - click to show)You can open a door if you are holding crowbar by typing OPEN DOOR, but not PRY DOOR or OPEN DOOR WITH CROWBAR. Exits don't match up. Doors don't open by themselves.

The writing is sparse and thin.

There is no real emotional connection to the game. Perhaps if it was better implemented, a lower class white life and its issues could take the stage.

The puzzles are not hinted at all. Sensible commands are frequently try ignored.

This game placed last or close to last in 1997's IFComp. Games like these lead to later movements for more beta testing.
