Welcome to REVERIE

Before you begin, there are a few things that might be important to know:

1) you must be alone:

Any company or distraction will subtract from your experience of this program. Your mind must be focused. Turn off all other devices, including lights and climate control.

2) make sure you are lying down:

Your body must be completely at rest for the duration of the program. If not, you may return with physical complications.

3) ensure that you have enough time to complete the program:

If you are interrupted, who knows what'll happen to you? ^_^ Reserve approximately 72 hours.

4) use only the headphones provided to you with the device:

These are specially engineered to...well...just use them. Why? Because I told you so. Do you need any other reason?

5) most importantly: STAY AWAKE

>begin >quit

Cement? Why would you choose that as a bed of all places. That can't be good for your back. >keep sleeping >wake up


It's dark. You're not in any sort of room, but it's darker than anywhere outside should be at any time. However, you feel completely at rest. >let there be light! >stay in the dark

There's nothing to see. Where are you, anyway? >say "hello?" >get up and wander >turn off the damn light! you need your sleep


"Hello?" you ask. You are greeted with silence. Geez, that helps a lot. >wait >get up and wander >go back to sleep


What's that? You want to get up? Too bad. Gravity's a lot stronger here. >wait >what's this thing in your hand? >try to get some sleep


It's a pen. Anyone would know that. It's one of those clicky pens. You know, the ones you liked to bounce on your desk in grade school. It's currently closed. >click the pen >go back to sleep


Aah. That was satisfying. Wait, what's this flowing out of the tip? It's not ink. The river seems to be endless. WHATEVER YOU DO, DON'T TOUCH THE--

This was reminiscent of games before high-level graphics. You used to play them with intricate card decks. That you have written one in this form is sheer genius. I loved it. Great work!!!!

@sydney I'm heavily influenced by The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and BBC's text-based game of the book. As for the concept: I used a random word generator and dream came up ^_^. glad you like it!
