How It Begins

You are a prince, carrying nothing, outside the tower of the princess you wish to wed. However, before she'll even let you inside the tower, she demands that you must first prove your love by bringing her the head of an orc, the rib bone of a goblin, and a diamond the exact size of a golf ball.

Notable Features

  • Some breaking of the fourth wall, where the author tells the player that he didn't have time to elaborate on various objects in the game. Also, some room names, such as The Most Boring Location In The Game, break mimesis.
  • There are at least two ways the player character can die. And when the PC dies, the game ends without giving the player any chance to undo the fatal move.
