Description: SCP-2219 is an unlicensed Game Boy game titled "PORRIDGE" created by the Totleigh Software Corporation,1 where the main character "GOLDOX" must progress through levels and defeat bear-themed enemies. Apparently designed as a platforming-style adventure revolving around the story of "Goldilocks and the Three Bears", SCP-2219 comes without clear instructions and is subject to ambiguous gameplay goals and various glitches.
In the place of an instruction manual is a singular note reading the following:

Interviewed: Jacob Nagle
Interviewer: Dr. Isaiah Henderson
Dr. Henderson: Good morning, Mr. Nagle. I hope your treatments are going well.
Nagle: I need to play PORRIDGE again.
Dr. Henderson: May I ask why?
Nagle: If I tell you, will you let me play it again?
Dr. Henderson: I'm afraid that's not possible.
Nagle: Damn. Of course it isn't.
Dr. Henderson: Do you feel a psychological compulsion to play PORRIDGE?
Nagle: Do I look mental or something? If you knew what was coming after the final boss, you'd want to play it too. It's not even supposed to be a game, it's a way to weed out the unworthy. I saw the one guy that beat the game. Just to look at him, the light coming out of his eyes, it was—
Dr. Henderson: Go on.
Nagle: Yeah, nice try. You white-collar shitstains would keep it all for yourselves.
