Terminal Easter egg!

Recommended Posts

In case you need another hint...

 

The username and password for "Pokey" can be found if you examine the bins in the mailroom!

 

Or if you want me to just give it to you I can!

Google "emacs dunnet"

 

Where's the fun in that?

 

Well, none whatsoever, but if you get stuck at least it moves you on. There's a few tricky bits, like the login to the VAX and a cheat might help.

 

The problem with using cheats is that you always accidently see other things on the page that help, but that you didn't want to see.

 

Anyway, good game, reminds me of playing "Adventure" on a Norsk (a Unix mini-computer) at college in the '80's.

 

And I'm still trying to finish and not use cheats.

Dead end

You are at a dead end of a dirt road. The road goes to the east.

In the distance you can see that it will eventually fork off. The

trees here are very tall royal palms, and they are spaced equidistant

from each other.

There is a shovel here.

>pick up shovel

I don't understand that.

>take shovel

Taken.

>dig

Digging here reveals nothing.

>piss

You can't do that here, don't even bother trying.

They are palm trees with a bountiful supply of coconuts in them.

You begin to shake a tree, and notice a coconut begin to fall from the air.

As you try to get your hand up to block it, you feel the impact as it lands

on your head.

You are dead.

Computer room
The panel lights are steady and motionless.
>look
Computer room
You are in a computer room.  It seems like most of the equipment has
been removed.  There is a VAX 11/780 in front of you, however, with
one of the cabinets wide open.  A sign on the front of the machine
says: This VAX is named 'pokey'.  To type on the console, use the
'type' command.  The exit is to the east.
The panel lights are steady and motionless.
>type
You type on the keyboard, but your characters do not even echo.
>insert card
You must supply an indirect object.
>insert CPU card
You must supply an indirect object.
>insert card cabinet
You must supply an indirect object.
>insert cabinet card
You don't have that.
>insert card into cabinet
As you put the CPU board in the computer, it immediately springs to life.
The lights start flashing, and the fans seem to startup.

The combinations I tried with the names from the mailroom don't work either.

 

Note what it says in the help menu: "one or more clues"

>help
Welcome to dunnet (2.01), by Ron Schnell (ronnie@driver-aces.com).
Here is some useful information (read carefully because there are one
or more clues in here):
- If you have a key that can open a door, you do not need to explicitly
 open it.  You may just use 'in' or walk in the direction of the door.

- If you have a lamp, it is always lit.

- You will not get any points until you manage to get treasures to a certain
 place.  Simply finding the treasures is not good enough.  There is more
 than one way to get a treasure to the special place.  It is also
 important that the objects get to the special place *unharmed* and
 *untarnished*.  You can tell if you have successfully transported the
 object by looking at your score, as it changes immediately.  Note that
 an object can become harmed even after you have received points for it.
 If this happens, your score will decrease, and in many cases you can never
 get credit for it again.

- You can save your game with the 'save' command, and use restore it
 with the 'restore' command.

- There are no limits on lengths of object names.

- Directions are: north,south,east,west,northeast,southeast,northwest,
			  southwest,up,down,in,out.

- These can be abbreviated: n,s,e,w,ne,se,nw,sw,u,d,in,out.

- If you go down a hole in the floor without an aid such as a ladder,
 you probably won't be able to get back up the way you came, if at all.

- To run this game in batch mode (no Emacs window), use:
 emacs -batch -l dunnet
NOTE: This game *should* be run in batch mode!
