# Cotton

Cotton is a horror-esque text-based adventure game I developed using the functions and macros built from The Wizard’s Game in Conrad Barski’s Land of Lisp. Slightly more interesting and convoluted! (It is not that scary.)

To give you a flavor of the game, here is an excerpt from one run:

You open your eyes, and you are greeted by an unfamiliar ceiling.
Startled, you get to your feet and quickly scan your surroundings. It's
dark except for the stream of light coming from a crack on the only boarded
window in the room. You try to peek through the crack, but you cannot see
anything. You wonder where you are and who could have possibly brought you here.

look
The room is a picture of decay with only a faded number identifying it as room-4. The bed you were
lying on is stained with what looks like dried blood. Could it be your blood? No - it is not. The
only way out of the room aside from the door to the corridor is a window that is boarded shut. It
looks like it has been like that for decades. There is a door going west from here. You see a candle
on the floor. You see a match on the floor.

The candle is now lit. It illuminates everything in the room.

walk west
The corridor is lit with the candle. It is so long that you cannot see to the end. You notice that
there are words written on the wall. There is a door going east from here. There is a way going north
from here. There is a door going south from here.
