The Prosperity Commission transportation facilities are designed for the utmost safety and reliability. They are equipped with weapon dampening fields, highly-trained security forces, and four redundant computer cores. You are the third backup computer core for a facility under construction. You should never have to wake up. Something is wrong.

"Backup" is a game originally made in 2009, heavily inspired by C.E.J. Pacian's "Gun Mute". It is a (potentially) violent piece of interactive fiction with multiple endings set in a science fiction world of robots, plasma swords, and intergalactic finance. I’ve attempted to create something that rarely occurs in interactive fiction: a game that requires tactical thought as a challenge rather than puzzle-solving. In-game instructions and hints are available by typing HELP in-game. “Backup” is written in Inform 7.

To play the .zblorb file, you will need a Z-machine interpreter, which is like a media player for interactive fiction. For desktop computers, the current recommended interpreter is Lectrote. Alternately, you can play online using Parchment.
