There are plenty of things I could have played about Zombies[1], but I felt like keeping to the theme of not having a consistant theme between posts, so instead, I’m leading you through a series of rooms. The entrance is in front of you.


Square Room – Them

You find yourself in a square room with just one table. Somehow, an atmosphere of the psychodelic 60’s seems to prevail. You feel a feeling of love in the air, but there is also an overpowering cloud of incense filling the room. Other then the way you came in, there is a door to the north.

> examine table

You see a record on the table.

> pick up record. examine it.

You pick up the record. (Your score has gone up by a point.)

It appears to be the album Now and “Them”. Looking at the track listings, you notice Square Room amoung them.

Proceeding north, you come to…

White Room – Cream

You are in a white room with black curtains by the station. There is an exit to the east, but you were supposed to wait for a lady here. In the distance you see a train pull up.


Time passes… The train departs.


Time passes…

> wait

Time passes… A few more trains leave and depart. It doesn’t look like she’s coming.


Abandoning hope of her arrival, you proceed to the next room.

The Cedar Room – Doves

You are alone in a cedar room. There are doves roosting by the window. You can exit to the north. You feel somehow different upon entering this room.

>examine me

You are a shadow of your former self. You also appear to have gotten much more angsty, and are pining away.

>examine pine

This room is made of cedar, not pine.

>examine doves

As you get closer to them, the feelings of angst deepen.


You have entered a twisty maze of posts, all different…

[1] Such as songs by The Zombies, like “Time of the Season”.
