For a Change is a text adventure game, originally written for the 5th Interactive Fiction Competition. It is set in a small world where the sun is gone, hidden behind the High Wall that casts an omnipresent shade. The player's goal is to bring back sunlight. The game's setting is somewhat surreal, containing such sights as giant glass cubes or machines that make lies true, and the language is characterized by odd word choices and a strange lexicon.
