The classic children's story, as a top-down rpg-style game.  It is a simple game, but has two different endings.  Use the arrow keys to play.

This game is part of  series of short demo games made with the Elm Narrative Engine.

This particular game demonstrates how the same interactive story script can be embedded into wildly different styles of games.  I have this top-down version, a 2D point-and-click version, and a fully text-based version.

You can try the 2D point-and-click version here:
