Synopsis

Plot

Your long arms and legs allow you to easily climb and swing in trees. Your fur makes it easier to withstand the occasional cold night. The others seem to think your opposable thumbs make you look funny, which is why you spend so much time alone.

Life is pretty routine. You search for food, eat it, hide from enemies and ignore the others. Then, one day, you notice a tall edifice right here in the middle of the forest. What is it? Why is it here? Where did it come from? Does it contain food?

Notes

1st place (out of 34) in the 3rd Annual Interactive Fiction Competition. Version 1 was released for the competition in 1997. Version 2 was released in 1998.

The opening scene is clearly based on the start of Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey, which is in turn based on Arthur C Clarke's short story The Sentinel.
