Lost in a Forest
A Text Adventure
Oh no, you're stuck in the middle of a forest! What to do?
You go north. It leads into two different areas: a dark cave and a bridge above a lake. Now what?
You enter the cave. It sure is dark, and you don't have a flashlight. You unknowingly fall off a conveniently located ledge.
You head to the bridge. Youch, there are alligators! They eat your feet, which immobilizes you, eventually devouring away your entire body.
You go west. It leads to a small abandoned village. Interesting, isn't it?
As you traverse the village, you find a hidden chamber that heads downward. Any thoughts?
As you enter the chamber, the entrance immediately locks shut, leaving you no chance to escape. Then suddenly, some evil guy appears, captures you, and holds you hostage in a carbon monoxide chamber. At your first breath in the chamber, you instantly pass out and die.
You continue your journey and eventually make it to the end of the village. A locked fence to leave the village appears in front of you. Now what?
Your attempt to find a key is unsuccessful, and to make matters worse, you fall into a trapdoor during the search.
You successfully climb the fence. After all, the fence was quite low and didn't have any spikes or electrical wires. From there, you keep following the path. The more you travel, the more you see the sun. Eventually, you reach civilization again. You have escaped the forest!
Where do you start searching?
You head on inside, and begin searching. Unfortunately, a bunch of rattle snakes suddenly appear and bite you crazily. Looks like you're doomed.
You grab the nearest shovel you see and start digging. Look, it's a small treasure chest! Your reaction?
You open the chest, and there's a jewel inside! But little do you know that the jewel really is as sticky as hot glue, designed as a nasty trap. Yeowzers!
You keep digging, only to eventually find yourself so low to the ground that you can't get back to the surface. You're doomed!
You go east. There is another fork in the road. Which way should you go?
You go left. You arrive at a wide open area with trees surrounding it. In other words, it's a dead end.
You enter unmarked territory. As you progress, you get tangled up from twigs and leaves, leaving you stuck and without a way to escape.
What message should you carve?
You successfully carve the message. At some point, someone with a helicopter arrives at dead end as a result of reading your message. They ask if you want a ride back to safety. You say yes. Then, the person takes you to the helicopter and flies you back to safety. You have successfully escaped the forest!
I LIKE PIE.
You successfully carve the message. At some point, someone with a helicopter arrives at dead end as a result of reading your message. They ask if you like pie. You say yes. Then, you get pied to the face, and before you can protest, you get kidnapped.
You go right. It leads to a bridge above a ledge. As you cross the bridge, the bridge snaps. You fall from a massive height and die.
As dangerous as it sounds, you go for it anyway. You're doing fine, until you reach animal territory. Then something bad happens.
You yell for help. Nothing happens.
As crazy as it sounds, you proceed with the action. Luckily, someone with a helicopter notices and rescues you! You may be out of the forest, but instead of at home, you're stuck in a mental institution.
Exalted on the tree, you proudly stand up, raise your hands, and howl for help again. Unfortunately, that's when you begin to slip, and suddenly, you start to fall...
Whack, whack, whack! Ouch, that must hurt!
The stick you find is a giant one. Whacka, whacka, whacka! Now the brain hurts.
Yeah, this ain't looking good.
When you do that, you coincidentally pass out as well. Oh well.
The nearest object is a poison berry bush. You can probably tell what happens next.
