A still life of an electric guitar and amp with all knobs and switches, May 1, 2016

This game was entered in the IF Art Show, a competition over the years that asked participants to create portraits, still lives, or landscapes using Interactive Fiction.

This is a still life of an electric guitar. Rather than playing specific chords, you have an amp and a patch cord and knobs affecting treble, bass, tremolo, pick up, and so on.

Not knowing much about guitars, I just fiddled around, but it was a lot of fun. My favorite moment was when the parser recognized "PLAY STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN".

Recommended for fans of other art show pieces like Galatea or the Fire Tower.

Richly simulated worlds by Emily Short
IF in which the setting is especially deeply simulated, especially works that implement traditionally difficult systems (fire, liquid, ropes, recording devices, etc).
