RONP4TEXT-BASEDADVENTURE

I present to you, beloved members of the commentariat, an actual working  Ron Prince text-based adventure game. I made it with a program called Inform 7.  I emailed this to Spencer around a month ago, but I don't think there is a way to actually load it on the site. So, unfortunately, y'all have to do some work.

The game is a .zblorb file. You can download it HERE.

To run the .zblorb file, you need an interpreter:

An interpreter for windows is available here (click the hyper-linked text that says "downloaded"): http://www.davidkinder.co.uk/frotz.html
An interpreter for Macs is available here:  http://ccxvii.net/spatterlight/

If you download an interpreter and open the attached file, the game should play. It does for me.

I've played through the thing a few times, and I still can't find any bugs. The only advice I think is necessary is that almost everything involves either TAKEing or OPENing.
