In the Navy! is a Z-machine interactive fiction game written with Inform 6 and is © 2004 by "Ernesto Heywood".
In this brutal parody, you play as the captain of an Iowa-class battleship, the USS Stevedore, currently in the Persian Gulf to support the troops in Operation Iraqi Freedom. Your every weapon is loaded and ready to fire.CAUTION: The game's protagonist is a racist, a bigot, a sadist, and a homophobe. The game contains over-the-top violence, a huge amount of homoerotic innuendo, and intentionally bad room descriptions.
This solution is by David Welbourn, and is based on Release 1 of the game.
Players should be aware that this game is a vicious parody of a specific author's style. I won't spoil things here by revealing who the real author is or who it's parodying since the target of the parody is not known for being a good sport.
The game In the Navy! can be found somewhere on the author's own website. You might remember the author for his essay on how he never wants to see the phrase "Nicely done!" in an IF review, nor gutless reviews of AIF games.
