Anyway, it's just another night, and nothing can go wrong, can it?

It's not loading on firefox 6, I had to open it from google chrome. Interesting so far! Keep it up!

I don't know why the swf doesn't load but I know a fix:
change the .php at the end to .swf, it'll load fine!

Uh, can you get past THAT THING? Yes, no, maybe? NO?

Texts (even being short) were changing too fast - missed reading all of those at the first time and still don't remember what those said, so no idea what just happened :(

yeah, about half-way through, I realized that I'd have to shorten the game a ton, so there is no 'win' condition...
Anyway, there's a replay game button at the very end...
Sorry for making such a short game :(

Got it to work thanks to your ".php to .swf" solution.

It's a neat game premise, though it's really more like interactive fiction. The ending could've been executed better.

I also had to load the SWF directly in FF6 for it to work. I think the abstract representations worked well (you start at a party, right?), but I would've liked to see several more metaphors on the way to the ending.

@mikemacdee
I thought It was more like that, I wanted more interaction, but my abilities weren't high enough, I left my fingers of +2 coding on my other save :P

@mildmojo
I don't know why FireFox doesn't like my embedding, I'll have to find out...
I actually saw the main part as an amusement park (my lamps look vaguely like streetlamps), never saw it that way...

I'll probably add a retouch and add multiple endings, probably based on time (like for example, running from that demon-thingy for long enough would get you a better ending), but I'm not quite sure how this'll work...

Thanks for the reviews everybody!
