About the Story

This is an IF game in the old Colossal Cave Adventure style. Basically all your choices are just picking directions and manipulating stuff.

You wake up trapped in the school and need to find a way out before you are caught! Wind your way through over 100 different rooms and locations to find your way out of the abandoned and locked school building.

Initially published: 5.04.19

Update 1.1, 5.13.19: Added a time-out so that if you take too long you get caught in the school (Sorry about lost saves)

Update 1.2, 9.1.19: Fixed beaker issue, updated item use issue, fixed room descriptions (Sorry about lost saves)

From the Author

by Ogre

So this is for those who like to explore. You don't have to worry about guessing the correct words in a parser, since it is written with the CYS web site and there's links to help you find your way. However, most of the links are simply "Go East" or "Open Door," so it should remind you of the classic IF with a simple parser.

There are a number of objects scattered around the place as well -- some are required to find the end, some are not. It may take you some time to find your way through to the end, this wasn't meant to be a quick and easy run. In fact, there's even a timer so that if you take too long to explore, you get caught and lose. But feel free to map the place because if you get caught, you can always try again!
