gondolaquest

GONDOLA stands in a rectangular room. Some time ago he wandered here somehow, by unclear means and for unclear reasons. Not that it matters, really. GONDOLA is used to wandering into strange new places.

As the old copypasta goes, GONDOLA embodies the Taoist principle of WU-WEI. Strictly speaking, he does affect things. He walks and fiddles and touches the hearts of all who encounter him. He is not, however, here to save the world.

What should Gondola do?

look around

@Seong:

look around

GONDOLA looks around and reveals the other side of the room for us. Thanks GONDOLA!

On one side of the room, pale blue light leaks in from a thick glass WINDOW. A bulky ARCADE MACHINE sits against an adjacent wall, facing what appears to be a SEALED PANEL on the checkered floor.
Where the walls are otherwise empty, they are adorned with various GONDOLA PAINTINGS, each signed by a certain SEONG.

(You can take a closer look at any of the things in this room)

It's beautiful.

For some reason these COLORFUL BUTTONS seemed white whilst zoomed out. Weird!
A DVD logo bounces around the screen. GONDOLA stares at it for a bit. It almost hits a corner perfectly. Almost. Soooo close.

Read ship manual

@Seong

Read ship manual

GONDOLA resists his temptation to examine the newly opened floor panel and instead visits the manual page [FULL TEXT ON GITHUB].

It looks long... (Maybe save the rest of the manual for later?)

enter floor panel that says "2F"

@smoe

enter floor panel that says "2F"

Enter? The panel? But it looks solid? Maybe it's a trap door, or...

!!!

GONDOLA is understandably hesitant.

print test page, read, then throw onto the panel

print test page, read, then throw onto the panel

Huh. Ok.

CHUCK TESTPAGE sinks into the panel and disappears in a flash of light. Stray sparks linger in the surrounding air, giving GONDOLA a tingling sensation.
