Neon Haze Porpentine has made a new twine game, Neon Haze, with art and music by Brenda Neotenomie.

Porpentine herself has given content warnings for violence, torture, drugs, and institutionalization on her tumblr. Emily Short has written a reasonably informative review, with spoilers clearly marked. Brenda Neotenomie's commentary on her soundtrack may also be of interest.

Just finished it. One of Porpentine's better pieces.

Oh man, I need to be up in the morning, I need to not get sucked into something immersive and unsettling, but I am so excited about another game from these two.

The music wasn't bad, but then all of a sudden, THERE IS MUSIC! (he says as he scrambles for the volume down on the keyboard)

I can't seem to figure out the code box. Any suggestions?

Porpentine has been generous and supportive to me since I reached out to her about teaching Twine. I'm excited to play this once I finish grading my summer classes, which ended today. Whee!

I've tweeted at Porpentine before and she replied to me too! Very gracious.

I've slept on it, so I may be foggy, but I think for the code box, I tried variations on 370_3 until I arrived at 37093?

I think the thing with the code box is that you can't just enter the missing digit, you have to enter the whole number. Or at least that was where I got stuck for a bit.

Yep, what chainlinkspiral said is correct.
