You walk into the shop. It looks just like every other "adult" VR cafe in Philly. Smells like it too. The clerk who called in the job is standing at the counter. You recognize his voice as he talks over a holo-casset of *Cyborg Cucks*.
[[Talk to clerk.->scene 01a]]
[[Look around the cafe.->scene 01b]]
"Hey buddy, I'm here to repair those VR units."
The clerk ignores your hello, eyes glued to the footage of trash cans ramming each other.
The VR cabinets are always in the backs of these joints.
[[Walk towards the back of the cafe.->scene 02a]]
*The Motherload VR Cafe* specialized in providing patrons with erotic virtual reality trips, but they offered a few other bits of more traditional entertainment.
[[Talk to clerk.->scene 01a]]
At the back of the shop is a heavy curtain. You pull the curtain back to find a collection of old VR pods.
One of the units has a sign that reads "Out of Service".
[[Walk up to the broken VR unit. -> Scene 03a]]
As you pull off the sign, you smell an oder of burnt plastic. These pods like to catch fire when too many wires get crossed.
Should be a simple job though, you've fixed hundreds of these before.
[[Crack open the wire panel.->scene 04a wire panel]]
[[Inspect the control box.->scene 04b control unit]]
You crawl inside the pod. Everything feels a little more humud in these units, sort of slippery.
[[Strap on headset. ->scene 5b vr menu]]
The headset flickers a menu into your eyes. Time to run your favorite test.
[[Initiate "Test002: Mile High Club"->ex00 test_flight]]
You're on board an old 20th century airplane, packed pretty tight for first class.
[[Press the passenger assistance button->ex00 test_flight_b]]
A beautiful flight attendant comes to you asking if you need any "assistance". Before you answer, their hand grabs your inner thigh.
[[Bring thier hand further up your thigh. -> ex00 test_flight_c]]
[[Look deep into their eyes. -> ex00 test_flight_c]]
[[Kiss them on the mouth. -> ex00 test_flight_c]]
[[End simulation. -> ex00 test_flight_c]]
The panel pulls open with a few tugs.
The wires are a little loose, but nothing that would cause a full smoke out.
[[Check control unit. ->scene 04b control unit]]
These older models' external control units get all kinds of crud on them. Can make the machines go real haywire. Some dumbass must have spilt his bubble tea over the cooling vent.
It should be good for a test run after a wipe down.
[[Clean control unit and initiate a test run.->scene 5a pod enter]]
The entire world appears to freeze around you, and an error message appears. Must have overheated, but the reset button should have you out in a jiff.
[[Feel around for reset button.->ex01 chatter]]
The blink of an eye, and you're bound by electrical tape as a sleak robotic dominatrix threatens you with inflatable toy hammers.
[[Hit reset button again.-> ex03 toes]]
You're then presented with a row of feet, hundreds of yards long. The feet's owners begin to beg for a toe suckle. The pleas begin to get louder and louder. Turning into an erotic drone that is almost deafening.
[[Hit reset button again.-> ex05 honey smoke smell]]
You appear in a golden hall with a giant tank of honey. You notice several tubes leading from the tank and into all of your major orifices.
You smell smoke beginning to rise inside your pod.
[[Slap the reset button as hard as you can.-> ex06 french girl smoke ]]
A very friendly looking man poses sensually, and asks for you to draw them like one of your french girls.
Smoke continues to fill the pod. It's becoming very hard to breath.
[[Hold down the reset button and kick at the pod door-> ex07 balloons lots of smoke]]
Before you can draft your masterpiece, you become surrounded in balloons. They begin to rub against your body, popping one by one.
The pod's smoke is unbearable.
[[Mash the reset button and scream for help.-> scene 07 escape]]
You rip the headset off as the smoke fills your lungs. Just as you're about to black out, you see the pod hatch open from the outside.
Fresh air hits you, along with a tank's worth of fire extinguisher.
[[Take a deep breath. -> scene 08 dnouement]]
The clerk looks pleased in his act of bravery, and asks through a toothy grin, "Didn't you read the sign asshole?"
[[Consider a new line of work.-> scene 09 end]]
[[CLICK TO START->scene 00]]
You finally hit the reset button, but instead of popping the pod's front hatch, the simulation changes and you find yourself floating naked in a pool of wind-up chatter teeth.
[[Hit reset button.-> ex02 robo dominatrix ]]
