CYOA / Re: Falling Off the Elevator Game
« on: 4 Jun 2022, 02:59 »

You sigh. "One of the floors had a whole... simulated life for me. I lived for ages in that simulation. Fell in love, even."

His eyes widen in shock. "Really?"

"Yeah. And... I was happy. Way more than I ever was down here. I felt... complete when I was with her. But then the simulation ended, and it was back to the drudgery. All those years were just another floor, no more important than any of the other random bullshit in that tower." You wince in pain. Your body can't take injuries the way it used to.

"Christ. I'm sorry." He really looked horrified. "I can't even imagine what that's like."

You study his face, and recognition hits you. "Wait... Jason?"

He... no, Jason, smiles. "You do remember!"

You're a little embarrassed. "I'm sorry. I don't know how I forgot."

"You're hurt. And you've been through a lot."

"You don't even know. I met her one more time, on a higher floor. She said she was in on the simulation the whole time. Seemed totally different from the person I knew. I..." You struggle to remember. Somehow, in the short time you've been out, it feels like yet more years have passed. "I tried to... k-kill myself. It didn't work. That was when I jumped."

You both sit in silence for a moment. Jason speaks up. "Maybe it wasn't really her. The second time, I mean."

You haven't thought of that before. "Maybe... That'd make sense. I knew her so well, and that wasn't the person I fell in love with."

"Not many people escape the Tower, but everyone who does talks about how the place plays tricks on them. I bet it was something like that."

"You're probably right. It doesn't matter, though. I'll never see her again."

Another silence, this time for a minute. You ask, "And it's only been a week down here?"

He squinted. "Did I say a week? Shit, my bad. It's been a few months."

"Fuck, I can't believe I'm really back here. I wasted my life in this city." You start to cry. "I was s-so desperate to get away from here... I w-was willing to do anything. This can't be happening... That place, on Floor 3487, that felt like where I belonged. I should've known it was too good to be true."

"Hey..." Jason seems to want to help, but he's at a loss for words. "Please get some rest. I'm just glad you're alive."

Despite falling an unimaginable distance, somehow your injuries weren't too severe. You're released from the hospital a couple days later. It's a short walk to your apartment.

The Towers, sparsely distributed, stretch far into the inky blackness of the empty sky. The shorter buildings seem to glow with malice. You hate this city. The feeling is mutual. Bad memories briefly flash before your eyes, like getting punched in the face. Your route takes you close to the Tower you scaled, which you try not to look at. You pass by a nearby café, with a picture window in front. You briefly glance inside absentmindedly. Wait. You double take. There's no way.

Your head buzzing, you step into the café. This is crazy. Awkwardly, you look at the woman, sitting bored at a table, who caught your eye. She finally sees you back. Her eyes light up. Now you're certain it's her. It's Audrey. A second later, you're embracing.

"You finally made it!" Audrey practically shouts. You feel young again, except better. "I love you!"

You have dinner together and catch up. "Did you ever meet me after I was taken by the elevator?"

She frowns. "No. What do you mean?"

You feel so relieved. "Forget it." You have to ask. "How... how are you here?"

She smiles, warmly but mischievously. "After you were taken, I figured out a way to jump. Took the kids too. It was, um, a bit of a culture shock... but I've made a decent living here. And when I can get free time, I eat here, 'cos I knew you were going to come by someday."

"Audrey... You did all that for me?"

She blushed a little. "It's nothing. I wasn't happy, alone up there. The kids missed you."

You start crying and laughing. "I can't wait to see them again!"

You still hate the city, sort of. Returning here was your worst nightmare. You never thought this could feel okay, and yet... it is. Maybe you didn't waste your life after all.

A blur. You are eventually released from the hospital. The man is waiting for you outside.

"Who are you? Where am I?", you ask again, simply.

"You don't remember me?"


He looks at you, sadly. "You should never have scaled that tower. It looks like it aged you decades in only a week."

You start to realize. "It did."

"What did you see?"

A. Tell him about the farm
B. Tell him about your spouse
C. Be vague, say it kept you in a lengthy simulation
D. Say something else
E. Stay silent

CYOA / Falling Off the Elevator Game
« on: 1 Oct 2017, 14:38 »
Part 1
Part 2
Part 3
Part 4


You fall off the endless tower, cackling all the way. After all the Tower has taken from you, nothing is more exhilarating than finally taking charge, even if it's in the most self-destructive way possible. There will be no next floor. There will be no paramedics to prolong your torment. You promise yourself one impossibly long drop, and then peace. Minutes pass. An impact. Unconsciousness. Cessation of existence?


The first thing you notice is pain. All over. You wake up in the passenger seat of a car. A man is driving you somewhere.

"Where am I? Who are you?"
He replies. "I found you collapsed in a ditch. I'm taking you to the hospital."
"You didn't answer either of my questions."
"Relax! Don't exert yourself. You need rest."

A) Let him take you to the hospital. Whatever this place is, whatever tricks might be happening, you're still badly injured.
B) Try to convince him to turn around. You need answers!
C) Try to exit the car. You can't trust him.

Floor 4426 is a bustling diner. There's a pedestal with a clipboard on it in the middle of the room. It says "FARM LIFE EXPERIMENT". What is this? Who are you? Where am I? Suddenly, the diner is empty. Your wife is standing in front of you, with an unsettling thin-lipped smile. "Not to worry. I was in on the farm simulation the whole time!" You point the gun at her, then think better of it and point it at your own head. A deafening crack.

You hear a man's voice. "Not to worry. You are now on floor 4427, which just so happens to be a revolutionary cranial bullet wound treatment center! So we won't have to be concerned about any rash actions, hmm?"

You scream. You are in handcuffs. He carries you into the elevator, dumps you on the ground, and leaves. The doors close. The handcuffs automatically open. Unlike before, you don't get up or struggle with the doors. You simply sit and wait for the next floor.
