Very interesting source, and a great adaptation! Thanks for sharing - I liked the subtle "click to expand text" mechanic and you used it really well here. I will definitely recommend it to my friends and followers who love old school sci fi.

Thanks for playing and I'm glad you enjoyed it! It was an exciting find to come across the screenplay, that's for sure.
