How It Begins

You are a museum worker, carrying a self-help book, taking a break by the lake. You'd like to do something to impress your boss, or failing that, try to relax.

WARNING: This game requires the PC to urinate, which might be disagreeable to some players.

Notable Features

  • Very small game. There's only one location, no scenery, and very little to do.
  • The game uses both a score and rank. There are two ranks and two slightly different endings depending on whether you earn 9 or 10 points. (There is no initial ranking for 0 points.)

Trivia and Comments

  • The reference to a super-intelligent shade of blue comes from the book The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams.
