is a text adventure game, its events beginning in the near future. The player character finds himself trapped in the London Kensington Gardens, as hordes of nannies mysteriously block the exit. To make matters worse, a Soviet nuclear missile is about to fall. The protagonist finds a strange door and steps through it. The bizarre location outside of space and time contains other doors, each leading to a site where a historical or a fictional nuclear explosion has taken place. The player has to interact with the environment and solve puzzles to change the course of history before traveling to the New Mexico desert on July 16, 1945, and affecting the events of the fateful Trinity Test.

Designer Brian Moriarty
about what he wanted to achieve with the game (Computer Gaming World #32, November 1986):
I wanted people, when playing the game,
to feel their helplessness. Because that's what I felt
when I was reading and talking to these people and
seeing these places. You could just feel the weight
of history on you. Going to Trinity site and being
there and realizing what this place means. I just
wanted people to feel that weight on them when
playing the game. Have it crush them in the end,
because that's what I got out of my studies and research.
(From Infocom Home Page fan site)
The game contained a comic "The Illustrated History of the Atom Bomb", a map of the Trinity site, a cardboard DIY sundial, and instructions for folding an origami crane.
