Description

In this game the player is in charge of a night watchman at a heavy industrial concern. One night, while supervising security camera feeds in the office, the player determines that the level of inactivity around the property is extraordinarily low, and sallies forth into the night to investigate. There, the player encounters... well, not to ruin a surprise, but sinister things that go "bump", having been unleashed upon the worksite by a disgruntled ex-employee. The player must employ all the equipment at hand, as well as a rudimentary knowledge of science and the operation of heavy industrial equipment, to uncover the full story of the threats menacing the facility and how to set things straight.

This game, as represented by its initial browser and machine-portable datafile versions, was initially written in version 4 of the Quest text adventure system, streamlining away the use of the text parser for frequent activities but still based on it; the Android and iPhone versions were converted to version 5 and hypertext-enhanced, meaning that while a rudimentary parser remains for optional use, the entire game can be played by poking at appropriately-highlighted nouns, verbs and menu items on the screen.
