An excellent thing. A bit abstract for my taste; background isn't exactly story. Okay, that's not true. It is a story by the end. But a somewhat distant story.
However, playing with the toys makes up for that and more. Oh, the toys. I can hardly blame the objects for that bit of abstraction, considering the way things work.
I got stuck in exactly one place, and that from a parser bug. (Describe the second key as "sturdy" so I can refer to it! Better yet, jigger ChooseObjects() so that it asks for disambiguation.) I found two endings, and I'm really curious what the rest are.
