This screen is displayed after a short delay while the game loads. There's no title screen, no music and no pictures - straight into the detailed text ...
... that continues onto a second screen
After exiting the bus the player is immediately placed in mortal peril
Luckily there's a guardian nearby who saves the player from a squishy demise
The guardian hands the player a document and thus begins the mission.
It took me ages to realize that the document referred a real document that's included in the game's packaging. Games can be saved to disk to be continued later
