A short, underimplemented but funny horror game, July 16, 2017

In this short ectocomp game, you have to buy a newspaper and go into a diner, where events soon unfold in a dangerous way.

I had a lot of trouble figuring out what to do, so I had to textdump the game, but once I found the ending, I thought it was humorous. It definitely could use some more synonyms, though.
