How It Begins

The player is instructed to enter a "word of significance" from the text to alter the poem. The opening two lines of a poem is:

I had
Figueres in my basement

Notable Features

  • Poetry generator in the style of, and inspired by The Space Under the Window (Andrew Plotkin; 1997). There is no player character, no location, and no world model in this game. You are simply generating a poem.
  • All standard commands are disabled including out-of-world commands such as RESTART, UNDO, and QUIT. Instead, the player types in a word from the poem so far. Words chosen from the final line so far extend the poem. Choosing a word from an earlier line will shorten the poem, backtracking to that point.
  • After the two-verse poem is complete, the offered choices in the end-of-game question are somewhat different than the usual:
    Would you like to KEEP this poem, CREATE a new poem, SHOW the poem again, FIND a kept poem, view the CREDITS, or say GOODBYE?
