I couldn't load the browser version. I got the following error:

Odd. I could see that coming up in the middle of play for a few reasons but straight off the gate is strange. What browser were you using? It seems to work fine more often than not on chrome

Sorry, I'm not 100% sure which browser I was using.
Probably Chrome. Possibly FireFox.

Is it right to say that something is both absurdist and allegorical?  Its very amusing and definitely makes me feel panicked & out of control. I liked how it pressured me to think as fast as I could.

The idea seems to be fun but the texts are just too fast. I didn't manage to read the texts and options before they changed. So it was hard to influence anything. Maybe bit too much out of control.
