first telephone game

I decided to make a very simple game on the phone: With a few tools, I wanted it to be a system where someone can call and be lead to different destinations, depending on what they choose. While I wanted it to sound more 'spy' like, I think my poor audio mixing skills merely made it sounds creepy. A few extensions are designed to be a bit creepy, some are humourous, some are random, but they utilize the commands we have learned thus far. The only one I haven't used is caller ID: the right opportunity has not risen yet. This is really a test of sorts: eventually I hope to create a game where people can receive information and perhaps progress somehow. I do want to play with the idea of encryption and spies though.

Well, call the redial number 917-534-6464, ext 25, and have some fun. I'll clean up the audio tracks in the coming week.
