How It Begins

What a godawful storm this is. Lightning cracks in blue-white webby streaks every few seconds, followed by ear-splitting KA-THOOOMS of thunder. So much for the "Clear skies and sunshine through the weekend!" weather report of the noonday broadcast. You remind yourself to kick that soapy-headed pretty boy meteorologist in the ass when you get to the studio... yawp! The wind is shoving your car off the road. Man, this sucks balls.

KA-KI-KA-KAR-BALOOOM!

Cripes, that one was close. Did a cow just explode?

Trivia and Comments

Versions

Release 1

(Note: How did a single version of a game get two IFIDs? The legacy-style IFID is generated by the unbundled story file; the randomized-style IFID was specified only in the .iFiction record bundled in the zblorb. So both IFIDs are valid.)
