Motel California

Hello. I am new to this forum. I web-published my first IF today on my website. May I present to you… Motel California! In this game, you can check out anytime you’d like, but first you must return your room key, claim your luggage, and find your car key.

I’ve started a tradition at Pegamoose Games in which I try to release a new puzzle challenge each April Fools Day (no, really, this is not a joke). This year, I tried my hand at using Inform to write my first IF. And, I must say, I had a blast doing this project. I wanted to blend, not only the elements of a text adventure, but some of our other styles of puzzles, too. So, in this IF, you may need pencil and paper to work out a puzzle or two.

Anyway… I’d love to hear what you think of it. I look forward to working on more IF games in the future. Enjoy!
