For real though, Jenni Clark
Okay. Your name is Luke Dobson. Good a name as any, you guess. But it's probably not your real name. You don't remember your real name. (You don't remember much of anything, really, which is pretty convenient for the purposes of this storyline.) But you're going to use this name anyway because you can't just go sauntering about without a name. That would be stupid.
Anyway, your working name is Luke Dobson.
You're in your room. There are no windows, but there is plenty of light. Nothing too special to speak of, except the Console, at which you're sitting right now, and a few decorative items hanging on the walls. The one that catches your eye as you look around the room is the one above the door: a quotation in large, red letters. It says:
Not quite sure what that means.
The Console screen says "Enter Name". You type "Luke Dobson". The Console says "Luke Dobson not found".
What do you do?
Jenny Eightfingers. The pirate.
Enter "404 File" into the computer
Robert'); DROP TABLE Students
"404 File not found....smartass"
"Knock it off"
The screen goes blank for a few seconds, and then the Console restarts. The screen displays a message:
"Welcome to the Console, your window to the world.
Internet connection status: Connected
Speed: 52 Mbps
Signal strength: Very good
Total disk space: 32GB
Space in use: 0 GB
Space available: 32GB
Yeah, you're not doing that again.
"Only 52 Mbps? Pfft. Weak."
You type "Name" into the Console, congratulating yourself on your cleverness.
The Console responds, "The Experiment is your only hope."
You immediately decide that you are going to try to make further interactions with the Console as un-creepy as possible.
>What is the 'experiment'?
"The Experiment is your only hope."
It's pretty clear that this is all the Console is going to give you on this particular topic. What asshole built this thing?
There's got to be some way this machine can be useful.
Crack open the Console and look at it's guts.
Alternatively check out other items on the wall.
Some of the other things on the wall:
One pretty mediocre piece of art,
a "Mork and Mindy" poster,
and a weird-looking triangle with an open top and some lines in it.
The triangle thing looks pretty cool and familiar but also not very important to the plot.
The quote in red once again catches your eye. Maybe you should look up what it means.
Look up what it means.
Separate names with a comma.
