lyrics

~Explore The Forest: A Text Adventure!~

*You are standing at the entrance of a dense forest. What do you do?

-Enter forest

*You enter the forest. You are now standing inside the dense forest. What do you do?

-Look around

*I do not understand "around".

-Look at forest

*You look at the forest and realize it is in fact a dense forest. What do you do?

-Walk

*Walk where?

-Walk into the forest

*You are already inside the forest.

-Walk deeper into the forest.

*I do not understand "deeper".

-Walk forest.

*I do not understand.

-Go farther into the forest.

*I do not understand "farther".

-Go into the forest.

*You are already inside the forest. Perhaps you should look inside your pockets?

-Look inside pockets

*You look inside your pockets and realize that you forgot to bring anything with you, your pockets are empty. Only some lint and food crumbs line the stitches of your pockets. What do you do?

-Look around

*I do not understand "around".

-Look at forest

*You look at the forest and realize it is in fact a dense forest. What do you do?

-sit

*Sit where?

-sit on ground

*You sit on the ground. The trees look taller now. What do you do?

-Leave the forest

*You cannot leave the forest, you are still sitting. What do you do?

-stand

*You stand up. The trees look shorter now. What do you do?

-Leave the forest

*You cannot leave the forest, you do not know the way. What do you do?

-Figure out the way

I do not understand "figure out the way".

-You suck

*I do not understand "you suck".

-iuhaiflabflifdsfibda

*I do not understand "iuhaiflabflifdsfibda". What do you do?

-Explore the forest

*You explore the forest. What do you do?

-explore the forest

*You explore more of the forest. What do you do?

-explore the forest

*You explore even more of the forest. What do you do?

-explore the forest

*You explore even more of the forest and are now starving. If you do not eat a significant meal within (5) turns you will starve to death. What do you do?

-eat food

*You do not have "food". If you do not eat a significant meal within (4) turns you will starve to death. What do you do?

-Eat food crumbs

*You can't eat that. If you do not eat a significant meal within (3) turns you will starve to death. What do you do?

-Eat a tree

*You can't eat that. If you do not eat a significant meal within (2) turns you will starve to death. What do you do?

-Search for food

*There is no "food" nearby. If you do not eat a significant meal within (1) turns you will starve to death. What do you do?

-Eat a significant meal

*Thinking quickly, you remove the stitching from your pocket and fashion a rudimentary trap using the food crumbs and lint as bait and the pocket lining as a small net. Soon after setting the trap a tiny mouse scurries into the trap and is caught. To your surprise, a small snake slithers over to the caught mouse and starts to swallow it whole. To your dismay, a forest owl swoops down and grabs the snake with its strong talons. Before the owl can fly away with its prize, a grey wolf leaps out from the darkness of the forest and pounces on the unsuspecting forest owl and quickly devours the nocturnal bird. The grey wolf, having finished his meal looks up at you with a glare that could be mistaken for curiosity if the sizeable wolf wasn't lurched forward in an attack posture, teeth bared and growling at such a low pitch that the reverberations echo and drone to envelop you in an all encompassing certainly that escape is impossible.

"Hi." Says the grey wolf in a charming yet growly accent.
"You look hungry. Hang on. One sec."
The wolf pulls a cell phone from his wolf pocket and dials with a finesse unexpected from a species without opposable thumbs. A moment later, the grey wolf barks into the phone several times, holding an untranslatable conversation with the mumbled voice on the other end. Satisfied, the wolf ends the call.

"Just a sec." The wolf quips.

From the darkness of the forest a fleet of bunnies dressed as wait staff from a fancy forest-themed restaurant leap around you and the wolf with spirited professionalism and within the time it takes you to blink, a full picnic spread is laid out in front of you, ready to eat.

You eat a significant meal. The grey wolf smiles in a grey wolf way before offering a simple respectful bow and disappearing back into the darkness of the forest from whence it came.

You have eaten a significant meal. Congratulations!

*You have completed "~Explore The Forest: A Text Adventure!~"

about

Pixel Recall Vancouver, British Columbia

PIXEL GREEN IS PEOPLE is a love letter to all the old video games I loved from my childhood, the debut digital-only album from PIXEL RECALL.

A throwback to the genre-defining 8-bit RPGs, if I could make my dream old school game this would be the soundtrack.

I sincerely hope you enjoy these songs and if you do, please spread your love and support for more music from PIXEL RECALL in the future!
