Here's an abondoned (since Python 2.2), but basically complete

For a taste of what it looked like, see the PAWS section of Roger
Firth's IF system comparison page, _Cloak of Darkness_.

This contains a P.A.W.S version of the very simple example game.
The author of the example is somewhat suspect, however.

As far as I know, no full game was ever written in PAWS. Once you
try it, you'll possibly see why no interactive fiction system
distributed as a library for a general-purpose language has ever
caught on. Every system that's enjoyed even moderate success has
been a language+library implementation.
