Corporate Space, the Year 21XX.

Can you do it before time runs out?


[Created in one month as an entrant for the Interact-If Story Jam 2022]

This is a story-heavy TEXT ADVENTURE game which uses three primary commands (LOOK, TAKE, and USE) alongside directions (NORTH, SOUTH, EAST, WEST [alternately N, S, E, W]), and interactive choice menus.

The game can be completed in roughly 90 minutes (give or take, depending on reading speed and how much you want to explore). Thanks to Adventuron, your browser will automatically save your progress, so feel free to come back!

This game is also mobile-friendly.

Type "TUTORIAL" at any time for an overview of the available commands and instructions.

Type "FONT SWITCH" at any time to swap to a larger, potentially more readable font (and type it again to switch back).

A walk-through can be found here if you happen to get stuck.

I had a great time playing this! The plot was interesting and I felt like the time loop aspect was cool and never felt too stringent, and I quickly discovered there was a friendly critter there to, um, help me reset the time loop faster if I needed to. The puzzles and exploration were in a similar spot, providing a challenge without getting frustrating. Very good work!


Thank you for the kind words! I'm so glad to hear that you enjoyed it.
