INSTRUCTIONS

Two Days to the Race is a text adventure game that you can play on your vintage computers. A text adventure is a game where all the interaction takes places with textand you instruct your alter ego by typing command at a prompt. The rest is done by your fantasy!

Here are some important commands:

look: describe again the location where the player is present 

examine object: describe the specified object 

north or n or go to north: moves to the north, if possible. Other directions are sewupdown

The command bye allows to exit from the game and restart well... it restarts it. You can take objects that you "notice" and you can have a list of carried objects with inventory.

The following abbreviations are available:

  • l for look
  • x or ex for examine
  • i or inve or inven for inventory

The game is divided in four parts. When you complete one of them, you will get a code that allows to immediately jump to the beginning of the next part. Write down that to resume the game in the future. Passwords are important, write them down!

You can freely download a digital version of the game with no restrictions. This game is included as a free bonus in the physical version of The Queen's Footsteps: https://darwinne.itch.io/the-queens-footsteps
