S.P.I.N.Y. on CD-Rom:  
the overall experience
You navigate in the    
mainframe and use the buttons  
for administrative tasks only.  
There are buttons for  
a) starting a new run through,  
b) regulating the sound volume,  
c) reading the help file,  
d) quitting the game.  
A run through starts with a  
cover image showing the title  
of a shortcut. Within a run  
through, you can go from frame  
to frame by mouseclick.  
S.P.I.N.Y. has been developed

yourself & the development    
of the story.    
At the end of each run through    
- which always takes place through    
a wrong decision / except for the    
main run through - you receive an    
evaluation of all your intuitive    
decisions. S.P.I.N.Y. never wants    
to be moralistic - things are up    
to you - so keep an eye on what    
the evaluation tells you but never    
think of S.P.I.N.Y. as a product    
wanting to sell cooking recipies to you.    
On NEW you can always start a    
new run through.  
You do not need any skills to    
play the game. The navigation    
is exclusively mastered by using    
the mouse.    
Tipp: don't always stick to what you    
think the rules are. Stay flexible    
in every moment.
