They Call Ya' Mister
An Interactive Spaghetti Western by Richard Headkid
(Parser, made with Inform 7)
You've been ridin' for days, and there's finally a town in sight just over the next hill. You nudge the horse to pick up the pace, before The Law intervenes.
Ya' see: there's this magic practitioner around these parts who goes by the name of Murphy. He leads a rag-tag gang of scoundrels he calls 'The Law'. They reign down unpleasantries on all the innocent folks (includin' women and children) in most of this dimension. That dang-blasted Murphy's got it in for you for some reason, too... And he's always sendin' his crew around to slow your progress! So be on the look-out for 'em! (The junior members of Murphy's 'Law' may not be seasoned magicians, but they sure do know how to sling some manure!)
Your mission: All you really need is some whiskey and a visit to a lady friend of yours. (Oh! And don't forget that message you need to get delivered to your unborn son!)
Are you gonna let them cow-pie slingers stand in your way? Or are you gonna show them good-for-nothin' yella' bellies how the cow eats cabbage and get to rootin' and tootin'?
