Here's a minor typo for you to fix (wrongly-positioned space character displayed when you click on "Quit your job"):

> Are you sure youw ant to quit your job?

I'm stuck...
I got a cup of toxic posion, I got promoted once, washed the porsche, went into the basement and found a rat I couldn't kick, I saw sergy on 5th floor go by on a rubber ball or something, i got the dna on ip, and lots of other stuff,
what now? I thought i tried everything...

T, there's something you need to have to do something on 5th floor :)

Is there more than one possible ending ?

Philipp Lenssen [PersonRank 10]

14 years ago #

Fanfan, yes, even though one of these endings I would say is clearly "the best" :)

ha-HA! (google.com/search?hl=en&lr ...)

I played through the game for like two hours, and finally gave up. I just couldn't figure out what the next step would be. (i never got a cup of toxic goo... hrm, I don't know if it's worth the investment of time to try again)

Philipp: Well, after a few unsuccessful attempts (meaning being fired and having to restart everything), I managed to discover what "T.. S....." really is about but, just after that, the adventure stopped in a kind of disappointing way, at least for me ... do you mean there is a better way to finish ?

... you can "win" the adventure. That's the good ending, if you win. And you will know, I think.

Hi guys [PersonRank 0]

14 years ago #

cool game, i played for an hour but then gave up after i cleaned the porsches and he didnt even promote me after he said it could help my career! :(

green_elbow [PersonRank 1]

could someone please help me?
i've got the toxic substance, boots, found rat in the basement, got promoted thanks to DNA over IP thing, what else...had a nap in the idea chamber...gained access to the 5th floor but couldn't really do anything.

was i supposed to follow that cleaning robot down the shaft in the lobby?
i realise i should be doing something on the 5th floor but i'm out of ideas – i've tried to knock down a lava lamp but it appears i'm too short?

help! thanks.

How, exactly, do you get promoted?

I'm lost.

Boooo! Where's my Google Adventure?!

Philipp Lenssen [PersonRank 10]

Due to high demand of the game, combined with the fact that players click a lot causing a lot of traffic, I've switched the game to the Internet Explorer only version (which only causes "1 click", so to speak). I'm working on porting the cross-browser version to PHP5, which has native XML support that should be much faster than the current library I'm using.

I think the game is very enjoyable, but it could do with a save feature. It is really frustratíng when you die on the 5th floor after following Sergey into the wall and then have to start all the way back by turning down the volume of the radio on the 2th........... And if you then make the wrong choice there once more, you just have to go through it all again.

Easy! :) [PersonRank 0]

If you die just hit back a few times. :)

how do i find sergey on the 5th floor?
i have yet to run into him

green_elbow [PersonRank 1]

okay. i found sergey. but how do i catch up to him?

Helanren [PersonRank 1]

.........okay. i found sergey. but how do i catch up to him? ......

make sure you have the right equipment (have you talked to anybody in the basement?)

.........If you die just hit back a few times. :) .................

I have done that, but a page comes up telling me that teh quest has already ended

Fraz [PersonRank 1]

Yup. Dying on the 5th floor is more than a little vexing. I've tried 2 of the possible colours and they're both wrong. 2 more to try, ho-hum.
Also, is the dream important in any way?

Fraz [PersonRank 1]

Sigh, figured it out now. Great game.:)

Great game!
The link names contain 'spoilers' – so you can play faster if you pay attention ;)
[Sorry, I had to remove a spoiler here... but the answer is "yes" :)]

The server-side version doesn't show the link names, I hope to be able to switch it back to the server-side version (I need to improve the speed by switching to a different XML library).

Doesn't works here, IE says: "Acess Denied" and acts as if I were using another browser.

safas [PersonRank 0]

Well, I finally reached the "best" ending.

Thank you Philipp for this great adventure, I enjoyed it a lot!

Wait...there's more than one ending? But I thought there was only one..

kirsten [PersonRank 0]

Oooops. This adventure, at the moment, only works in Internet Explorer – I'm trying to fix some speed problems with the version for other browsers.

I am playing in Internet explorer.......

Kirsten, follow the link at the bottom of that page... so you can play the IE version.

Date, yes there are multiple endings, including two "best" ones resulting in a single "best" final.

Philipp Lenssen [PersonRank 10]

T, good find :)
You can actually load this XML file into a QML editor available at questml.com

The reason I preferred the server-side version of QML, next to having it run on any browser, is that this "spoiler source file" cannot be accessed. But in the client-side (Internet Explorer) version of QML, you can and must always put it in a public folder.

The Firefox version is now back.
