The Finest (there will be no music)
A downloadable game
The experience of waiting is universal and in many senses a uniquely human one. When adventure is promised and withheld, what becomes of the would-be hero? When their only companion is endless time and one another, what becomes of the noble adventuring party or crew of scoundrels? In a world of heroic adversity, how does a hero deal with the absurdity of being stuck in a small and hostile space?
Enter the Finest: the worst establishment in the world. There will be no music, drinks or friendly strangers; there may be fights, but they will only make your stay here more miserable. Worst of all, there is no exit. This is limbo, and you're in it for the long haul. Perhaps you'll come out friends on the other side. Maybe you'll even learn something about yourself in the Finest's exquisite desolation.
In short, have you ever wanted to replicate the experience of No Exit or Waiting for Godot as a prelude to your adventure? Have you ever wanted to define the space before the adventure begins? Are you interested in taking perhaps the most humanizing act of characterization possible, having to wait with no other recourse? Maybe you think you'd enjoy a game about being strictly confined and essentially disempowered. All of these, it turns out, can be surprisingly fun.
