How It Begins
The platform is so crowded that you fear you'll be pushed forward onto the tracks. You edge backwards slightly to forestall that possibility. Here comes a train now -- is it the Green Line? No, it's... the Black Line to Erebus? But there is no Black Line! And where the heck is Erebus?
- Wordplay. Much of the gameplay involves using homonyms of letters to spell words.
- Darkness. Although most locations are unlit, LOOK and EXAMINE still work much the same way as if everything was visible; one obvious exception is a book that cannot be read in the dark.
- There are 16 ways for the PC to die. The player can use UNDO after any of these deaths to continue playing.
