The Mansion by Nick Dablin

Your wealthy uncle has just died of a heart attack. You're his only living relative. What's strange is that your family has never had any history of heart problems and he was fit and healthy up until his death. Time to investigate and see if you can find any clues to his untimely death. This is a good old-fashioned adventure - puzzles to solve, keys to find, the usual. Hopefully it's large enough to keep you occupied for a good while! :)

I'd like to make some suggestions for people who are stuck:

2) If you really, REALLY think that an object you have has served its purpose, put it down somewhere memorable. You *might* need it again later.
3) You will only be able to do some things after you've found information about them somewhere else.
4) Pick up (other than the red herring) EVERYTHING.
5) If you find a duplicate of something, don't pick it up; its just extra baggage.
6) If you get stuck, try wandering around. You may find that you've skipped over something by accident.
7) Use (insert item name here) on (insert object name here) is a VERY useful command.
8) If you have a healthy command over human emotions, you WILL get frustrated. Do not give up. This game is worth it.
10) No, you can't water the plant.
11) It is ONLY a GAME. If it's not fun for you, STOP PLAYING.

Got all that? Good. Bye-bye!

Brilliant example of what a text based game should be. The mansion felt huge and intimidating, I really enjoyed exploring it.
