You find yourself stuck at a toll booth... Unfortunately,  the fact that it's automated and that it only has one lane is the least of your concerns...

This game was made in Bitsy Game Maker, so the sound will keep going even if you take a break.  So, please please please play it all in one go!  Also, you can't crash so move into other cars to read dialogue/narration.

This is based on a true story... Well.  I got stuck at a toll booth like this for 5 or 6 minutes and I came up with this scenario.  I then gave it to John Jack Cantey as a writing prompt.  He wrote it during his free time  while directing a new theatre adaptation of A Christmas Carol.

Wow!  Thank you.  This is one of my favorite things that I’ve made so it made my day to see your post. Thanks again!  <3

Hi. Is the part where it says "You scream without making a sound" the last screen/room? Because I can't go anywhere.

P.S. It's still a great game though. and nice choice of music.

Yep, that’s the end!  Thanks for playing. And thank you!  I was worried that the composition was a bit too intense but I’m glad I didn’t play it safe. Making the music was fun, which is good because I’ve been struggling to enjoy the process. :D

Hey, Kurt, am I supposed to be able to leave the toll booth the second time? Because the car seems to be stuck on that screen. (Music is fuckin great for the atmosphere tho)

You should be able to go back the edge of the screen and hit left and you’ll get to the next area.


And thanks!!!!  :D <3 <3
