Genie is a Glulx interactive fiction game written with Inform 6 and is © 2002 by Stark Springs. It was a participant in IntroComp 2002.

In this incomplete game, you play as a genie. Soon, your new Master will open your bottle and you will need to grant his first wish: to bring him another drink because he's not drunk enough.

This solution is by David Welbourn, and is based on Release 0 of the game.
