I hate writing bad reviews. But frankly, in this case I don't seem to have an option. This game seems to have been written for a university project, which is great: IF is vastly underrated in general, and the more people who write games the better off the community is.

That is correct, that's what I meant. (Spoiler - click to show)There's a room which includes a conversation in the description that's repeated every time you type LOOK. Sorry about the confusion.

Ah, okay. That makes sense; thank you.
I finally had to download the game just to see what it was about. None of the existing reviews (or the basic database entry) mentioned the plot or the point, the title is suitably vague, and with all the attention I just had to find out what the heck the game was trying to be (let alone whether or not it really fails so terribly) :)
The pain began when I tried to ANSWER PHONE and EXAMINE PHONE (or CELL, or CELLPHONE, or CELL PHONE ...) Ouch.
The pain didn't last long after that. QUIT works just fine, fortunately :(

I don't understand the part about "plot information is included in room descriptions." Just about every game I've ever played includes some kind of plot information in room descriptions on occasion. :/
