Check engine lights are so vague. Imagine if the human nervous system was just like "Yup, something's wrong, but it could either be a mosquito bite or a fractured skull"

I'm working on a command-line based game in which you explore procedurally generated dimensions. I'm still working out the details, so its possible it'll never be finished, but I hope it comes out as I'm hoping.
