Child's Play

An interactive fiction by Stephen Granade (2007) - the Inform 7 source text

Chapter 2 - Introduction

Introduction is a scene. Introduction begins when Goading ends. Introduction ends when the player has your favorite toy.

When Introduction ends:
    record 10 points for "getting your favorite toy the first time";
    say "There is a ding-dong and the mom comes clattering in all 'Hang on! I'm coming!' She opens the door and there is Marion Kinmundy here for playgroup. She is carrying that little red haired girl Zoe who started coming to playgroup a couple of whiles ago. Zoe sees your favorite toy and her eyes light up.

The mom must be psychic or something because she whirls around and snatches up your favorite toy. 'Oh, no,' she says with a little laugh, 'we're not having you two fight over this thing again. I'll tuck it away where it'll be safe.' And Marion laughs too, which is cool, that way they don't notice you and the little red haired girl glaring at each other.

She wants your toy? And the mom wants to lock the toy away? Bring it on[note antagonist].";
    if testing is not in progress, wait for any key.
