Hibernated 1 Gameplay
Hibernated is a text-only adventure. It works with a two-word-logic, e.g. EAT APPLE, EXAMINE CUPBOARD. The parser is capable tough to understand better forms of expression. So you could write N to go north, you could also write GO NORTH. You generally move with N(orth), S(outh), W(est), E(ast), or any other direction that is written in the room description like, e.g. UP or SE.
You don't have to search for hidden exits, everything is clearly visible to you. A door though might be locked, with is a different cup of tea.
The game comes with many synonums that enhance the gameplay, e.g. EXAMINE BODY, CHECK CORPSE, INSPECT DEAD would all result in the same operation. LOOK AT is also a synonum for EXAMINE. To satisfy your expectations: corpses actually *are* objects in the game. Not only nouns have synonyms, the same counts for verbs: GET, GRAB, TAKE would all invoke the same operation.
You can save and load your progress at any time. Type HELP in-game to learn more about disk/tape operations. Type REDESCRIBE if you want to read the room description again. Hit INVENTORY to have a look at the items you're carrying.
The most common three operations have a short form: you can write R instead of REDESCRIBE to redescribe a room, I to check the inventory and X to EXAMINE an object.
QUIT allows you to end the game.
Common instructions are: USE, EXAMINE, DROP, TAKE, SEARCH, OPEN, PUSH, N, S, E, W. Other instructions derive from hints you get while progressing.
Type HINT to get a more or less cryptic hint how to achieve the next major goal in the game (progress-level).
