Thanks for the Frontpage! This one was for you!

I wanted to make something for Pico day but I couldn't think of what to make. So of course I had to make a text based game. Something inspired by countless hours playing games like King's Quest and The Black Cauldron.

-You can view the items in your inventory by holding the
[ctrl] button

-Play the game by pressing an arrow key to start moving, and
the same arrow key again to stop. Type things into the box
and press return. Type 'help' for a list of commands

-You can look at things or examine your surroundings by
typing things like "look rock" or you can just type "look"

-You can talk to people by typing things like "talk man" or
"talk darnell"

-You can obtain items by typing things like "get food"

-You can do stuff with items by typing things like "use map",
"give apple", "throw bat", or any other verbs before the
item you intend to perform that action on

-You can control the speed of the player by pressing - or +

-You can turn off the music by typing 'mute'

Make sure you look at everything and explore every inch the game or you probably won't be able to figure out how to beat it. I tried to dumb it down a bit, though.
Also, if you click off of the game screen and are coming back to it, you don't have to click on the text box to be able to type into it, just click anywhere on the game and focus will be brought to the text box. Isn't that cool?

Big thanks to all the people that tested it and helped me make it better. And if you find any bugs, PM me with the details. I would be most appreciative.

I love these kind of games. Hugo's House of Horrors was one of my favorite games. The only thing I didn't like is the amount of commands that were acceptable. It seems like you spent more time making swear words recognizable than things people would actually type in. Even if a command is not recognized, the game could give a funny response other than, "I don't recognize that command." It also could've thrown me a hint when I was trying to figure out how to make orange juice. Sorry I harped on this so much. I just think that half of the fun of these games is seeing the funny things that the game says when you type random things in like "Fly" or "commit suicide." The other two things that make games like these fun are the puzzle solving aspect. I also love chain of event type quests.

its alot like the trogdor game from homestar runner
im not sure if that was intentional but it was extremely similar not just the text base
not very user friendly when it comes to commands
but good attempt
