In this game, you play as Goldilocks, a nineteen-year old blonde bombshell who, after a crazy party, took a bad shortcut and you're now stuck in the enchanted forest with no obvious way out. Also, you could really use some food and somewhere to sleep off this hangover.

In this small game, you play as an electrical engineer, maybe? Anyway, you were getting ready for a big date in a rented tux when your boss orders you to get the new high-powered experimental safety net working so his joyriding boss flying the malfunctioning Dragonfly doesn't crash and go splat.

David Welbourn says:

In this tiny minimalistic work that satisfies the premise of the speed-if in which it was entered, you play as someone in a walled quadrangle surrounded by all the items in the premise. An exit leads east.
