Excuse me, can you help me? Yes, you, browsing itch.io! I need your assistance, but I don't have long. There's so much going on: remote surveillance, unauthorized cloning, forgotten languages, robots playing poker. It's time to take control! 

Absence of Law is a science fiction comedy from the author of Ether and Color the Truth. This game is designed to be accessible to those who have never played parser games, while keeping a few surprises for parser experts. 

The online version of this game uses non-standard colors and fonts, and has a complete musical soundtrack that can be enabled from the first menu. The download zip contains both a full offline web version (index.html) and a gblorb file with no colors or sound.

Where can I find the .zip file? It doesn't seem to be on IFDB or here on Itch, unless I'm missing something.


Oh, weird. You can access its contents here: https://www.ifarchive.org/indexes/if-archive/games/competition2017/Absence%20of%20Law/AbsenceOfLaw/

It's not zipped ,though, but you could download the entire  Competition2017 zip in the same directory. Thanks for asking!

Thanks for the help! 

I’m trying to make an offline backup of the top ~100 games on IFDB, and I couldn’t find the offline HTML version mentioned in your description, so thanks for helping me!
