Twine-Based Final Project

For my creative project, I replicated my apartment in inform 7 and made an adventure game involving keys and locked doors.  I felt like the basic commands that inform understood were too limited.  Although I am happy about the way my creative project turned out, I didn’t like having to work within the confines of inform’s understood phrases.
