About the Story

The Terminal seems to be frustrated with you, but you don't remember a thing.

Despite the Terminal's limited ability to understand you, you must attempt to ask the right questions in an effort to find out about your history together.

---

Created for NaNoTwiMo and TEXT jams.

Special Commands:

Type 'return to start' anywhere to restart the game.
If you get stuck in the main sequence (when the Terminal is asking what you want to know), type 'tell me something' to get some hints!
Type 'content warning' in the main sequence for content warnings (spoilers!).
Type 'main sequence' to jump to the main sequence, and 'end sequence' to skip to the end.

Thanks to HiEv for the neat terminal style, and helping with formatting the text box.
