A downloadable game

A very short and very silly text-based "puzzle" "adventure" kind of game where the goal is to escape the building that the player finds themself in.

I made this just to see how hard it would be to create a simple text-based adventure game in the style of old DOS games but then it took on a life of its own.

If you find any bugs please feel free to let me know
