A short, forgiving game, September 28, 2020

Flotsam and Driftwood is a very short, forgiving game in which you play a character who finds themselves on a mysterious beach shrouded in darkness. There are two main puzzles in this game. Although they are not entirely difficult to solve, they are clever and rewarding. I thought the (Spoiler - click to show)use of the stethoscope to assist in opening the safe was a nice touch!. I played through this in about 65 commands. It's an excellent introductory game for those new to interactive fiction, and has helpful 'help', 'command', and 'topic' commands.
