How It Begins

You are a space captain orbiting the desolate world of Boony. You are wearing a spacesuit and carrying a debt note, a flight manual, the ship's log and a trading log. Your crew consists of yourself and your engineer, Szymon. After recalling how you are massively in debt and your cryogenically preserved twin is being held as collateral, a transmission from the surface asks if you want to land.

Notable Features

  • Travel is implemented with a "jump to" verb. The player must learn (or guess) the name of worlds that are valid destinations.
  • The "examine" verb responds only with "You didn't get this far as a space captain by needing to examine everything that's plainly in front of you."
