A thought-provoking speed IF about a prison, June 5, 2017

This game was based on a pretty funny quote as described in the readme in the zip file.

This is a conversation based game in 2 rooms, where you talk to an old man about a strange prison with a strange gate.

This had great storybuilding, a strong setting and a vagueness about morality and about your choices.
