About the Story

Welcome to the Bunker, an orderly, underground utopia where everyone's needs have been satisfied.

You, Cory Resden, are a population tweaker in I-12 sector. You don't aspire to much, and your life is fairly unremarkable. But one daystretch you receive a call from a stranger requesting a clandestine meeting in the cleaning station outside your office, and your steady, uneventful existence is turned topsy-turvy.

You never wanted any part of excitement or trouble. You certainly never imagined yourself smuggling contraband, unmasking terrorists, and just possibly taking revenge on your petty and cowardly coworkers. Not that the going is easy. It's is all you can do to avoid being accused, abused, targeted, stunned, drugged, demotivated, cremated, and eviscerated.

But it's all in a daystretch's work, citizen. After all, today is the same as any other.

What is bunker, November 7, 2019

Very atmospheric game with a good amount of background lore in 1984 feel with a nice touch of humor.
Its has modern parser, middle size length with normal difficulty and a good built in hints system.
I had a lot of fun playing it and getting into this rich dystopian world.
As a sci-fi lover, big thanks for this adventure.
Hoping for the next part in the series.
