You find a small black box with a keyboard and a little screen buzzing and flashing at you. When you pick it up, you see the numbers "1979" scratched into the black plastic. You also see a message printed out on its screen.

A promising first entry in the Ectocomp competition, November 4, 2018
This current game was, as far as I know, the author's first completed work. I remember testing it in the forums. It implements several clever ideas/puzzles, one puzzle in each of four rooms.
However, it sort of attempts too much at once, not leaving enough time and space for careful implementation.
The author's second game in this competition, Wake Up, was written in less time but with more skill. It had a narrow focus, excellent implementation, and a great overall structure. It's clear the author is learning by leaps and bounds.
So I can't strongly recommend this game, but I can recommend Wake Up, and I believe the next games to come from this author will continue to increase in quality.

All you can do is eat or wait. There are two endings. There are no good endings. Based on a random idea in a Twitter conversation. https://twitter.com/howtophil/status/1250219872019197954 I joked I was making it... then I made it.
