The UG is dark and damp. Water pipes have burst and flooded the lower portion. The pool tables are on their sides or have broken legs, and most of the TVs have fallen off their pipes. The hot tub is a kind of spiderfrog spawning ground and is full of clouds of eggs.
The item the player needs here is the deadly frogspawn.
The deadly frogspawn is located in the hot tub area and is protected by a single massive frogspider. There is an old plastic cup nearby which they can use to scoop up the spawn. The frogspider can be moved by fixing the TV (requiring tools from other rooms? portable generator?) behind the tub and turning it on; it will become frightened and jump away.
The guardian frogspider is as large as a cantaloupe and has horny protrusions on its head. It is aggressive but will not leave the spawning pool.
Oh, hello! Who might you be?
I’m a golem, my name is Col,
Made of paint as you can see.
Getting out of here is my goal.
I’m not sure how I got into this mess,
But there’s no door in this room. I think I’m stuck!
If you can’t help me escape, then I guess
that I’ll have to resign myself to my bad luck.
Give Col a text command or suggestion to help him enter the next room.

The following are a handful of poignant, unique or just unusual games I’ve encountered over the years, ones that have particularly left a mark on me.
There’ll be no defending towers or flinging birds here. Many of these are in the same vein as Myst, but others take different directions. Every single one of them is worth your time.
DayMare Town, a strange and oddly deserted town that gives the unsettling feeling that eyes are peering from around corners. It is a drab and dreary town, not a very pleasant place to be. But now you’re stuck, and you’ll do anything you can to leave.
Our coil is broken, and we don’t have a replacement. It’s useless. It’s so useless.
All that struggle with those damn machines. Is there even some kind of normal world outside this endless mess of submachine? Over and over again, no beginning nor end. What was his name? That man with one arm? I forgot even that.
I just give up. I don’t care anymore.
You Find Yourself In A Room
A game that slowly realizes that it hates you, and everything you stand for.
Throw yourself into the barbs.
Read carefully. Run and jump through the text of stories and poems, from the horror of Lovecraft’s “The Nameless City” to the simple beauty of Bashou’s frog haiku.
Take a poignant walk through the life of an alien caught in the midst of humanity. This is a game that you may not consider to be a game. It won’t tell you if you’ve won or lost. You won’t level up or defeat the final boss. It’s short. It’s simple. You might get nothing out of it at all. That’s fine. Just try and be respectful to those who do.
