How It Begins

You might be anyone, carrying nothing. You are standing in the town square of a nondescript New England town, with nothing in sight but a phone booth. You don't know what you're supposed to do, but you do know this: if you pick up the phone booth, you'll die.

Notable Features

  • Minimalist IF. There's very little to this game. Only one room, only the PC and the phone booth, and the game can be won in one move. (The game can also be lost in one move.)
  • Joke game. Not meant to be taken very seriously.
