Mmm, I tried it a bit, but then I remembered why IF's can be so frustrating. I had no idea what to do or how to use the items I was carrying. I explored the museum where I could but didn't know what else to do.

Maybe some kind of walkthrough or list of possible actions to use would be useful.

The writing is amusing though. Gentleman

I guess a walkthrough could be useful, but that would really shorten the length of the game to like 3 minutes :D

The game is very unforgiving, but inspired by games such as the old Hitchhiker's IF, this is on purpose.

Why doesn't the command 'use' do anything? It's the first thing I think about when handling an object.

Because that's really not specific enough. I don't think I've ever seen an IF that handles that command.

That's because you are spoiled by 'em newfangled graphical adventure games with their pre-school vocabulary Tongue

I found a bug.  Sad

Code:
Glulxe fatal error: Reference to nonexistent Glk object.

I think I've figured out the easiest way to reproduce it:

1. Save your game (on the first turn, even.)
2. Exit Glulxe.
3. Open Glulxe again, open the Museum, and restore your save.
4. >MUSIC

I don't know anything about Glulx, so I'm afraid I'm not sure what causes that. But it would happen to anyone who saves the game and picks it up later and wants to hear some kickin' tunes again.

Also, a spoilerific question about the game itself.

Inform 7 just introduced sound support, so this is to be expected, I guess. And your spoilerific question is totally correct.

Finally beat it, and it was very well done. At one point, my save file refused to load but I can't seem to recreate it.

It's a good thing I read the help section, or this game would've taken more than an hour. Still looking for 3 more points though. I love IF, and this is just the type of difficulty I love.

Thank you very much Kiss

I've been trying to recreate the feel of the very first IF I played, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. It was hard and it was quite possible to get permanently stuck in the game, and I wanted that here, too.

Maybe you need to get some kind of tool to get out.
