Her Majesty's Trolley Problem

About the Story

No one said life in Her Majesty's Service would be easy. Fortunately, you've got everything you need: your officer's handbook, a harpoon cannon, and the indefatigable command of Captain Lionetta herself. If the Captain can't navigate you and your prisoner through the Empire-forsaken town of Innocence Lost, then who can?

A short game of choice in a parser wrapping.

An amusing and odd fantasy game involving a series of trolley problems, February 26, 2018

This game is set in a fantastical alternate world with animate skeletons and talking pigs.

Supernatural trolleys and trolley lines connect different parts of the world together, and you are a harpooner on one such trolley.

Your task is to be confronted with several situations where the good of one is pitted against the good of many and you have to make a choice. This is the classical trolley problem, and also, in this game, a literal trolley problem as you decide who to run over.

There is also a side mystery uncovered by Club Floyd but which I was not aware of.
