IF comp 2009 – GATOR-ON, update

November 7, 2009

Update to GATOR-ON, Friend to Wetlands!

Turns out i was a little pre-emptive in attempting to locate the crow, since i hadn’t attempted to unlock the hatch in the first place, it hadn’t therefore stolen my shiny key.  In my defense, i did examine the hatch.

>x hatch
You see nothing special about the hatch.

Now, i know that a hatch in the middle of the wetlands should have made me think to pursue it further but given the fact that almost every other attempt to examine or search something has so far not been implemented, i really don’t think it was entirely down to my stupidity this time.  OK, maybe it was but… well… uh screw you!

Incidentally, i’m now way over the 2 hour limit, so if this one gets seriously good i’m gonna have a bugger of a job scoring it.

Anyway, i’m hoping that’s the hard work out the way.  Lets see.

Woah!  there’s a fuchsia coloured alligator here.  I always wanted to be a fuchia coloured alligator robot.  Did i mention that?

So, lets get it on then.  Helmet on, large button JUST BEGGING to be pressed…

>push button
Your massive snout easily pushes the large button. Almost immediately, a passage appears in the north wall and the cavern fills with water. Unfortunately, this has consequences for the tiny person in your brain.

*** You have died ***

YOU WHAT?  YOU GODDAMN WHAT??

After all that, i die.  No, that’s not it.  Others have raved about you.  That’s not it!  That can’t possibly be it.

>undo
Limestone Cavern
[Previous turn undone.]

>x me
You look mighty.

Heh heh!  See, now i’m almost back on side again.  Almost.  Unless you kill me again.

Now things really get confusing.  I can get into fuchsia alligator but don’t seem able to do anything.  So, i try to get into lime(for example) which works(if you ignore the screenfull of errors(whoops!)),

>enter lime
You get into the giant lime-colored robotic alligator.
She appears to be asleep and her hair is braided.

…only now i’m in fuchsia which is in Lime and i still can’t do anything, so really, even though i was seriously looking forward to what happens next, until i see an actual walkthrough(is there one?) rather than hints that don’t really cover stuff that i need them to cover, i’m afraid i’ll have to leave it there.

Still, i’m looking forward to trying it with the walkthrough open in another tab.

The errors though… well, now that’s just a no-no my friend.

Still, fluff for the fuchsia alligator.  Nice.
