How It Begins
(During the prologue, the author apologizes, asks the player to enjoy the game, to save often, and not to leave objects behind or rooms unexplored if you're obviously about to leave a section of the game.)
You are a man, carrying a bottle of champagne and a napkin with a marriage proposal written on it. You are sitting at a table in "Martins Resteraunt", and as you watch a young woman leave, your lip shakes and tears roll down your cheeks. Overcome by emotion, you will automatically make your way to the east balcony, climb over the edge, and leap to your death — unless you can find a way to stop yourself.
- The text color (both background and foreground) changes during the game.
- The text is awkwardly broken to adhere to a maximum 80-character line length, without trusting the interpreter to do it.
- Poor English. Many words are misspelt.
- Outsided (Chad Elliott; 1999; Z-code 5).
