Zork Walkthrough Song

There are a few blogs that have this song, so I should have it on my own! I was super excited when BoingBoing.net had it on their site!

Walkthrough - Pifie and Errol


FAWM clear its songs every year, so all the links will eventually be lost. This was written for 50/90, which I wasn’t doing but I wanted to write a song with pifie! I think the instrumental is awesome. The song did so well because the music he did was so cool.

Liner Notes:

ERROL:
I asked pifie to write an instrumental that I could write lyrics too. And for some strange reason he said yes and actually made one for me! So here I am singing to it. It is very… very… geeky. In fact, I think only two of you will get the reference. But… oh well.

This SOUNDS easy, but it wasn’t… and I messed up in the end, but it was 2am and I got tired. Timing was really hard, and I now officially hate the word “Screwdriver”. And “Canary”.

Oh, and for those of you who don’t know, this is a Walkthrough on how to solve the first Zork, a text game.

EDIT by pifie:
For all the guys coming for the first time to 50/90: welcome to 50/90, hope to see you making songs around here on February (on fawm.org). And… all the credit goes to Errol!: he is the one who made lyrics!
