About the StoryYou have one job: Correct the errors in the System code. It's menial work, but it pays the bills. Only, maybe you'd rather not... What are you? Just a CodeMonkey? Perhaps you could join the Resistance, or at least get an early vacation with a special friend... Warning: No parsers, no links. In this story, you'll be monkeying with the code!

The Gaming Philosopher
Iím just following instructions and seeing what happens Ė if there are any neat tricks, theyíve been pulled by Mark Marino, not by me. Perhaps that is precisely the point; after all, the player character complains several times that heís always just following orders. But as a player, Iím much more satisfied by the approach of I. A. G. Alpha, where you can only create the winning code once you actually understand how the coding system works.

The code is obfuscated, with a large portion of it hidden in a huge string array. Making the code changes suggested in the text portions reveals 'secrets' in the code. Some secrets are a lot simpler than others.
This game is complex and creative, but I found it a bit confusing near the end. The first 'subversive' instruction was difficult for me to follow (especially 'put it in the parenthesis'. Put what in which parenthesis?)
Overall, I was glad I played and love the innovation happening here.
