I took it upon myself to add this classic game to the IFDB:

I can't wait to go back in

I can't wait to go back in time and tell my 12-year-old self that people still talk about his games in 2012.

This was amazing, but damn I

This was amazing, but damn I couldn't even leave the bedroom without resorting to the walkthrough.

I think it's probably more

I think it's probably more fun to read the source code for this one than to actually play the game.

I remember "playtesting" the game with my older brother; at one point he tried to do something sensible, like "use cashcard with cashcard machine", and it didn't work. Since that IF statement was long enough as it was, I decided the best way to solve the problem was to have the first page of source code (which you would see when loading the game into QBasic) should have a "hint" that if "use" doesn't work, you should try saying "put".

I don't recall whether any of the other "HINT: DO THIS THING EXACTLY" bits strewn in the game were the result of that test or not, though.
