How It Begins

Introcomp Release

You are Janet, a new recruit in a conspiratorial group called the Weishaupt Foundation. A lecture is wrapping up, and you're about to be summoned on another mission for your secret masters.

Release 2

You are told that the active agent is Hal, and that the status of all three agents (Hal, Janet and Benj) is OK. You are Hal, a minion-in-training of a secret society. You are midway through ransacking the lab of a gang of mad alchemists, but have still to locate some important documents. Your fellow trainees Janet and Benj are nearby, and you are carrying a pager.

  • Full version: a fair number of multiple solutions, which modify the plot to some extent.
  • Full version: instead of a traditional score, the game awards a percentile score on three axes - Effectiveness, Subtlety and Canonicality - at the game's end.
