back and forth. back and forth the ship goes. the engines whirr and the lighting cracks. red lights are on. they blind your vision. buggy is by your side though he is slipping with the ship.

>grab buggy.

you pick buggy up, his head tilts to the side. he is concerned about the storm just like you. the glass on your left cracks, rocks are hitting it. you both are scared.
>hug buggy.

you squeeze buggy. he squeaks in fear. he is still scared. so are you. the ship squeals and the lighting still cracks. There is a scream from the metal sides

>hug buggy more.

you wrap your arms around him stronger. he squeaks again. this time softer than before. you stay like this for a moment more waiting out the storm. others on the ship are yelling. there is another crack. you are on the floor, buggy is barely in your hands. youre vision is fading to black. buggy is already going limp.

>stay awake

youre eyes grow heavy and you try to fight the urge. buggys body is already slack.

>wake buggy up.

you shake buggy. he does nothing in return.

>stay awake.

you try to keep open your eyes but the darkness over takes you….

>wake up.

you cannot. you are asleep.


you are asleep.


you cannot.


you cannot.


there is water rushing past your skin, bits of rock. metal. and glass scrape past it.

>hold breath.

you hold your breath. your body is pulled back. into the water. it burns like nothing you've ever felt before.


you swim until you break surface. from there you doggy paddle.

>open eyes.

you open your eyes. they sting from the water and the sky.

>look around.

there is water.

>swim forward.

there is water.

>swim forward.

there is water.

>swim forward.

there is a large statue. it has red paint. twelve tendrils. and an eye. you survey the area, but only you are around.

>climb on it.

you climb onto the statue.

>look for ship.

it is too far.

>look for buggy.

he is too far.

>watch water.

the red water moves back and forth. it smells awful. but that might be the statue.

>look at arms.

they are purple from the burns.

>watch sky

you lookup at the sky. stars are not seen. rather stormy clouds filled with lighting. it begins to rain. you watch as the water begins to rise.


you cannot run on this corpse.


You look around the statue and find a decent hiding spot. though you know f you stay there you will be taken by the flood.


a god listens and something appears. floating on the water.

>hop on.

you mount the floating object and set sail.

Thank You for Playing.
