>Trinity by Infocom is an interactive fiction computer game written by Brian Moriarty and published in 1986 . It is widely regarded as one of the company’s best works. Trinity was included as one of the titles in the 2010 book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die , another true diamond found in the cold war roof .
The plot blends historical and fantastic elements as part of a prose poem regarding the destructive power of the atomic bomb and the futile nature of war in the atomic age. The name refers to the Trinity test, the first nuclear explosion, which took place in July 1945. It is Infocom’s twentieth game and the last game released by the company when it was solvent.
As the game begins, the player’s character is spending a final day of a London vacation in the Kensington Gardens. The evening flight back to the United States is looking increasingly unlikely for a number of unusual reasons. Hordes of nannies are blocking all exits from the Gardens, and the grass actively resists efforts to be walked upon. Worst of all, a gleam on the horizon soon heralds the unwelcome arrival of a Soviet nuclear missile. Time begins to slow as the missile approaches, and with some ingenuity the player’s character finds an incongruous door hovering in mid-air. There’s no telling where it may lead, but it cannot possibly be worse than the alternative of being at ground zero of a nuclear detonation…
The player is witness to, or rather narrowly escapes being a witness to, a number of nuclear explosions in the game. The sites visited, and the markings on the sundial that represent them, are:
- London, near future (fictional, Omega)
- Low Earth Orbit, near future (fictional, Mercury)
- Nevada (underground), 1974 (historical, Pluto)
- Eniwetok Atoll, Pacific Ocean, 1950 (historical, Neptune)
- Siberia, 1949 (historical, Libra)
- Nagasaki, Japan, 1945 (historical, Mars)
- Trinity, New Mexico, 1945 (historical, Alpha)
You’re neither an adventurer nor a professional thrill-seeker. You’re simply an American tourist in London, enjoying a relaxing stroll through the famous Kensington Gardens. When World War III starts and the city is vaporized moments after the story begins, you have no hope of survival.
Unless you enter another time, another place, another dimension.
Escaping the destruction of London is not the end of your problems, but rather the beginning of new, more bizarre riddles. You’ll find yourself in an exotic world teeming with giant fly traps, strange creatures, and other inconveniences. Time and space will behave with their own intricate and mischievous logic. You’ll visit fantastic places and acquire curious objects as you seek to discover the logic behind your newfound universe.
And if you can figure out the patter of events, you’ll wind up in the New Mexico desert, minutes before the culmination of the greatest scientific experiment of all time: the world’s first atomic explosion, code-named Trinity.
BUG VERSION 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 11/860509 Y Y Y Y Y Y Y *12/860926 Y Y Y Y Y Y Y
1. The Book of Hours is not reversed after passing through the Pergola in any version of the game. This could be considered more of a design flaw than an actual bug. (Or perhaps the book doesn’t change because it represents time, which, unlike directions, cannot be reversed.)
2. When you’re on the paper bird above Nagasaki, and you hear the plane approaching, type LISTEN. You’ll die, but the message will be the same as if you’d still been on the ground rather than flying on the paper bird.
3. Saying ROADRUNNER, DROP ME results in “The roadrunner drops yourself at your feet.” The room description then says “There’s yourself here.” Leaving the location and coming back does not change the situation. And strangely, referring to the dropped “yourself” is interpreted by the game as an attempt to interact with the roadrunner. The roadrunner will only drop “you” once — trying it again causes the game to say “The roadrunner doesn’t have that.”
4. Carrying the splinter into the bottom of the reservoir also reveals a small blooper. The room description talks about the lantern’s beam, even if you are carrying the splinter instead of the lantern. Evidently the author never considered the possibility of someone going to the Trinity site without solving all the other puzzles first.
5. Typing THANKS gives the reply “There’s no need to thank the b .” — Graeme Cree
6. You can prevent the origami bird from being damaged in the pram ride by emptying the bag of crumbs and storing the bird there. Thus, you never need to give it to the little girl to refold it. This works in both releases. — Allen Garvin
7. No matter where you are in the game, the command FIND LONDON gives the response “You’re already in London.”. FIND NAGASAKI on the other hand works correctly, and gives the response “You’ll have to do that yourself.” if you are elsewhere. — Zach Matley
