About the Story

Mr and Mrs Graham have gone out to a movie and left you to babysit their young daughter, Anna. Anna is in bed, so you settle down on the living room couch and fall asleep.

In your sleep, you dream that Mr and Mrs Graham come home and find Anna missing. The police are called, a city-wide search is instigated and you are severely reprimanded. Amid the humiliation, you suddenly wake up in a cold sweat.

You look around and see that you're still on the couch and everything seems fine. But is it? You had better check on Anna.

This game is based on Midnight Emergency by John H Doolittle. It is not a port, but a complete rewrite with extensions done in collaboration with the original author.
