How It Begins

First, the player is warned about "half-cooked imagery and graphically absurd scenes."

The COMMANDS verb suggests that "ASK [character] FOR [item]" and "GIVE [item] TO [character]" are very useful in this game.

You stand empty-handed beside a toaster's lever, the key to the Future Plane. Below you is the dial of the toaster; above you are the slots. Other inhabitants of the toaster wander about, sometimes pulling the lever and disappearing.

Notable Features

  • Uses the Reactive Agent Planner 1.0 module by Nate Cull to give the NPCs their various agendas.
  • One section of the game is presented entirely in the future tense.
