On the way back from your grocery run, you get a hankering for coffee. Will you be able to find some before the shops close?

A short interactive hunt for coffee set during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This game was written nearly a year ago (Feb-March 2020), when most of the world was only beginning to adopt lockdowns  to contain the spread of COVID-19. I wrote it at time when coffee shops where I live hadn't made up their mind if they should stay open for takeaway or hunker down until the lockdown lifted. This also explains the somewhat light-heartened tone of this game.

It must be stressed that this game is a work of fiction. Any resemblance to real people, living or dead, is purely coincidental.

The views on certain hot beverages expressed in the game are not the author's.

How to play

After clicking 'Run', ZZT will ask you to configure input. Select (K)eyboard and (C)olor, this is the standard configuration that works best. Press Enter to pass through the 'About ZZT' information scroll, and then P to start the game.

Once in the game, press any arrow key to unpause it. Controls are listed in the sidebar: use the arrow keys to move, and interact with objects by touching them. Further instructions are provided within the game. You can close a text dialog box you've read by pressing Enter or Escape.
