How It Begins

The player is asked for his name.

It's Wednesday. You are a 16 year-old male student with few friends. It's the end of the school day, and Teacher wants you to pack up and go. You'd like to get a drink from the vending machine down the corridor.

Notable Features

  • About halfway through the game, the PC must make a major decision, choosing between two different storylines that fork from that decision point.
  • Appears to be inspired by Japanese anime, at least in the characters' names and their appearances.
  • Sparse worldbuilding. There are very few items in the game, and some of the locations are undescribed.
  • Heavy use of forcefed commands -- that is, the game tells you exactly what the player must type -- and textdumps. Problematically, several of the forcefed commands have to be entered in a location other than the PC's current one, and there's never any reminder of what needs to be done when the PC arrives there.
