Key & Compass presents:
There Is No Bread
by Mikko Vuorinen

There Is No Bread is an ALAN 2 work of interactive fiction and is © 2000 by Mikko Vuorinen. It was a ToasterComp participant.

In this minimalist non-game and non-story, you are someone in a kitchen with a toaster. There is no bread — or anything else.

This solution is by David Welbourn.




There is no bread. There are no exits either. You can flail around a bit, but you accomplish nothing.

> x me. i. x bread.

> x toaster. x lever. x dial. (1 to 5)

> take toaster. (Can't.)

> push lever. z.

> set dial to 2. push lever. z. z.

> set dial to 3. push lever. z. z. z.

> set dial to 4. push lever. z. z. z. z.

> set dial to 5. push lever. z. z. z. z. z.

> put bread in toaster. take bread.

> hit toaster. kick toaster. xyzzy.

> open me. close me. drop me. fuck. yes.

> kill toaster. wave toaster. wear toaster. sing.

Honestly, there isn't anything you can really do.

> quit.

Do you want to RESTART, RESTORE or QUIT? quit

There's no characters, inventory, endings, or score. What else can I say about this one?
