just. letting you know.
There’s a small window near the back where you can still see the edge of the Earth. After a few seconds it disappears from sight.
There are tape marks around the window.
There’s a dated computer system nearby. None of the buttons appear familiar.
>PRESS A BUTTON
Music begins to play.
>PRESS ANOTHER BUTTON
The button doesn’t press. You jam your finger a bit.
There is a keyhole above the button. Next to the keyhole the number “28” is written in very small type.
>GO TO FRONT
There is a swiveling leather armchair at the center of a small room. There appears to be some basic controls here. All of the lights are flashing “AUTO”. There are no windows.
Any button you press appears to do nothing. Levers you pull snap back to their original positions.
>LOOK AT CHAIR
There is a crumbled up picture of a little boy and his parents. The top of the picture appears to have been carefully torn off.
You don’t have a camera.
>PICK UP PICTURE
There is something printed on the back of the picture.
“THINK DONT SMOKE.”
>SIT IN CHAIR
You can feel the old leather crack underneath your weight. The seat springs back up suprisingly and the right armrest cover falls to the floor. You hear something metal clang on the tile.
You find a small key. The number “28” is engraved at the top
>GO TO BACK
There’s a dated computer system nearby. Two of the buttons appear familiar. There is a small window.
>PLACE KEY IN KEYHOLE
The button below the keyhole lights up
The wall behind you creaks open revealing a very small room.
>GO INTO ROOM
There is a small bed. It is unkempt. Next to the bed there is a small table. To the right there is a dusty terminal.
>LOOK AT BED
It is unkempt.
>LOOK AT TABLE
On the table there is a square piece of plastic with a hole in the middle. Under the plastic there is a piece of paper.
>PICK UP PAPER
It is a picture of a sky. On the back there is a picture of a pack of cigarettes. It seems odd that there are so many in the box. There is tape around the edges of the picture.
It is very dusty. You can’t read what is on the screen.
There is something written on the screen…
“THERE IS A SMALL WINDOW NEAR THE BACK WHERE YOU CAN STILL SEE THE EDGE OF THE EARTH. AFTER A FEW SECONDS IT DISAPPEARS FROM SIGHT…”
