The Chicken's Dilemma

About the Story

In this one-puzzle one-room game, you play as a newly-dead chicken, killed when you tried to re-cross a road. Now you're floating in a black void facing a logic puzzle posed by a sign and a choice of four doors, only one of which leads to heaven.

A logic puzzle. Just one. Get it right, and you get to go to heaven. That's it, really.

Playable only once, December 20, 2010
by Bernie (Fredericksburg, VA)

This is a simple classic '3 lies and a truth' logic puzzle. Unfortunately, the clues and solution are stagnant rather than changing with each restart of the game, so the game is only playable once. Also, the game is completely winnable by accident which obviates the puzzle, and thereby the single bit of fun the game can provide. Indeed, upon my first play, I accidentally won without even realizing that there was a puzzle in the game.

Poor chicken, December 31, 2022

I mean, not much to say here. It's basically a one (or two)-room logic puzzle. Appreciated the Postscript.
