The Pumpkin is a Z-machine 5 interactive fiction game written with Inform 6 and is © 1998 by Andrew Schepler. It was an entry in the Speed-IF 2 event.
Your name is Bob. You've come to Neil deMause's New York City apartment, but he doesn't seem to be home. Then the wicked carved pumpkin on the stoop threatens your wife and tells you to do whatever it wants or else.
This solution is by David Welbourn, and is based on Release 1 of the game.

This walkthrough is provided free of charge since I wrote this walkthrough prior to January 2015 when I began my Patreon account, and also because the work it's based on has less than fifteen locations (so I wouldn't have charged for it anyway). I've since reformatted this walkthrough to use my currently preferred style. I hope you enjoy it!
I'm still creating new walkthroughs! Larger ones too! Please visit my Patreon account if you're interested in helping me create more interactive fiction walkthroughs. I appreciate all the help I can get! Thanks again.
