How It Begins

(This game continues directly after the events of Spooked! The Wonders of Science.)

You are Ben Xavier Williams, a scientist for diamagnetic research at Cocan University. You are carrying nothing. The electrofield has sent you to another dimension*. You are walking on a road and surrounded by thick fog when a man lunges out of it at you! And then he collapses in pain at your feet. He's around 80 years old and wears a purple and green polka dot shirt. You also see a conveniently-placed $15 bottle of water here. You probably want to help the guy, if you can, before continuing on the road.

(*How you come to this conclusion is unclear, since everything is shrouded in thick fog.)

Trivia and Comments

  • Playing the first game in the series isn't necessary in order to enjoy or play this game.
  • The game is a parody of both horror and IF and contains several in-jokes.
  • Although you are supposedly in another dimension, everyone knows who you are, everyone speaks English and they have the same cultural referents as we do.
