How It Begins

Your pager tickles you awake.

Upstairs in the house of your childhood, in your room, and it must be time for school because -- no, it's the weekend, you remember, but your alarm is going off anyway. You should have been awake already. You're going to miss the bus. Your mother climbs in the window. You're dreaming.

Notable Features

  • Selected for inclusion in the Iowa Web Review.
  • Selected for the Medi@terra International Art+Technology Festival: Gaming Realities 2006.
  • Selected for the Slamdance Guerilla Gamemaker Competition 2007. (Withdrawn by Montfort in protest of Slamdance's exclusion of another finalist.)
