Looks like that was the correct password. You are greeted with the home screen of this laptop. Oh look a game!

You click on the game to see what it is.

What's this? Is that supposed to be you? What's going on here?

Looks like you have 100 Points to spend on building your character, choosing from the items listed on the screen. No descriptions are given for any of them, and the prices seem kind of random.

You sit in front of the computer for what feels like months, struggling to make a decision. Curse your indecisiveness! Eventually, you decide to just click randomize.

It makes the decision of Kick Boot and Boomerang for you. This should be easy...
>Start.
Image
You are an aspiring Lab Assistant playing a video game about a Dungeon Crawler. You have spawned outside of the game's first dungeon, labelled 'Temple of Treasure'. There is no tutorial but you assume based on the title of the game your goal is to crawl through some dungeons.

What do you do?

train the pig
I'm more easily reached at classpectanon#4228 on Discord. I will respond to reports faster there because PHPBB's notification system is borked and doesn't email me when you report things.

The bond you share with this pig is beautiful. It is something transcending love - it is truth. Together, you hone body and mind. You climb Mount Friendship, you lift Palweights, you put it all on the line in an effort to attain the ultimate treasure - a relatively fit adventuring pig.

You gain a party member! The Pig is now Level 1.
>Enter the dungeon.
Image
You cross the threshold and enter the dungeon. You can feel the judgement pouring off the attendants of the help desk - they could never understand the bond you share with your pig. Luckily your pig has high self-esteem, so the glares don't get to him as much. In fact, he says you're imagining things and that the attendants seem pretty friendly.

Oh piggy. Oh poor, sweet, innocent, naïve piggy.

CHECKPOINT!

You are a Dungeon Crawler and Pig Tamer, and you have just tamed the shit out of this pig. Your goal now is to crawl the shit out of this dungeon. What do you do?
>Lab Assistant: Fondly regard companion.
Image
It took you 67 hours to tame the pig and train it up to Level 1. Your heart swells with adoration for the fictional companion.

The ghost butlers of LEVEL 3 have been feeding you rice krispie squares, but the excess of sugary fake marshmallow stuff is starting to make your stomach burn.

Weird.

New Game + Guy: Shoot yourself in the foot then cry to gain their pity.

NG+Guy: Then, when they're close and their guard is down, steal their spears and kill them at close range.

That was a terrible idea. You're in shock for a few seconds, so you don't feel the pain at first...

While the original idea was to cry for pity, you're crying now because you just shot yourself in the foot - literally - and it hurts like... well, it hurts as much as it would when you use a gun to blow off your own foot.

One of the guards tries to help you, so you take the opportunity to go for his weapon. Predictably, you fail.
->
Image
They throw you in the dungeon's dungeon to await your trial. The charge is attempted theft of a guards weapon. They made no effort to heal your foot after you disrespected their first help attempt, so it continues to bleed.

You drag yourself over to the book and squish the rat.

You toss the body into the hallway in an attempt to lure the guards. You notice that your cell doesn't have bars. This means you can escape easily!

You eat the cheese. Turns out it was a CHECKPOINT!

You are a Prisoner. You have just eaten a bad piece of cheese and killed a rat. You have lured some guards toward your cell. What will you do?

God your life sucks.
>Successful DC: Follow the guard into the secret room.

You do that.

Inside, you find the secret break room. The guard is on the phone, and you can overhear him calling his mother. He's asking her to pick him up early, says he's scared of this crazy guy that came in with a gun and then time travelled in from the future to be his own human shield.

He notices you, says "Nevermind mom -- don't come," and hangs up.

"Do whatever you want to me, but leave my family out of this."

Now that you mention it, this game is eerily similar to your own life experiences. There are some notable differences, like the starting equipment being a boomerang and boot instead of bullet and gun, there's the training of the pig that you never did... but everything else is the same, even down to the fact that you have no memories from before you popped into existence outside the Temple of Treasure.

Wait what?

You decide the only way to settle this feeling of existential unease is to drown the reward centers of your brain in some video game achievements.
