A short hospital horror game, July 16, 2017

This was a speed-IF for ectocomp, which generally means guess-the-verb issues and underimplementation.

That happens here, but not as much as I thought it would be. I didn't read the initial text, and that made the game harder for me, but once that was fixed, I was able to beat the game without a problem.

I found the horror effective. You are a late-night janitor mopping.
