West of House
You are standing in an open field west of a white house, with a locked front door.

You are carrying:
    A heart

There is a girl here.

She won't answer.

She won't answer.

It's too late.

The hill turns abruptly into a cliff. There is a house in the distant east.
The abyss is very deep and dark; you are likely to be eaten by a grue.

You hurl yourself off the cliff.
Your heart shatters before you hit the ground.

You are dead.

Your score is 0 (total of 100 points), in 7 moves.
I got this idea after playing Zork.

Remember; if you die in real life, you don't respawn.

Keep your heart in your inventory, and don't let anyone else modify its checksum or you'll get a CRC error.

haha i loved text games when i was younger. me and my friend found some object oriented text game builder and made games for each other.

also it sucks when you can't communicate with someone. thats the worst part of these situations imo. good writing
