Your head is killing you, but you resolve to get up anyways.
Ow, ow, ow.
What were you doing here, anyways?
... Oh yeah.
You were talking your dog on a walk. But... just how did you end up passed out on the road?
Did someone bash your head in and take your dog away?
You feel your head. There doesn't seem to be any external injuries.
You get up with great difficulty.
Something feels off here.
You wander for a bit, then you decide to look up at the sky to determine what time it is.
You are shocked at what you see.
Holy... Fucking... Shit!
What are you going to do now?
Remember Look Away? No? Not surprising at all. That was a pretty terrible adventure. What I've done here is use that similar style, and tell a new story with it. This will be far less silly than the last one, and I'll attempt to tell a decent story with this. Of course, I can't do it without you, the suggesters! So suggest away!
The inventory system in Look Away will be used here, but other than that, there will be little to no game mechanisms. This is pretty much mainly story-based.

>go inside the first house/construction that you see. Not only will you escape the saucers, but you will also be able to know what the FUCK is going on.
There happens to be a nice coffee house right next to the park. It was always your favorite coffee house, you would always come here whenever you were stressed out from work.
You enter quickly, hoping to avoid the gaze of the saucers. Even if they don't appear to be paying attention to you. Better be safe, after all.
Huh. Nobody here. You kinda had the feeling this would happen.
But... everything feels strange.
The lights and the machines are still running.
The chairs are neatly lined up at the counter. There appears to be a few cups of coffee left behind.
This means... there was no struggle. Additionally, you don't think anybody just got up and left, judging by the half drunk cups of coffee lying around.
It's like everybody just vanished in the middle of what they were doing.
This is seriously starting to freak you out.

You ponder these mysterious circumstances, while taking a bite out of a pastry.
You wonder why you were left behind. If everybody else seems to have disappeared, why not you? As far as you can tell, you don't have anything particularly noteworthy about you.
Mr. Ordinary. That pretty much perfectly sums you up. Working a grueling day job at the office. Coming home late to a loving family. Waking up early only to begin the cycle again.
It's funny, recently, you've been wishing that something interesting would happen to bring you out of your rut. But this. This... is just too much. You feel a twinge of sadness as you remember your family.
Why did they have to leave you behind anyways? This is all too confusing.
You resolve to see your family, even though you probably already know that they are gone.

You decide to stop wasting time and get in your car. Driving to your house is much tougher than you thought, because there are tons of wreckage in the way. You've had to drive off-road at several points.
Along the way, you check the cars carefully. There appears to be nobody in any of the cars, dead or alive.
You become more and more sure that you are the only one left behind.
You arrive at your house at last. Damn those aliens, they're here too? You rush inside your house, fearing the worst.
... No-Nobody's here...
You knew this would happen all along, but it isn't until now that the reality of the situation strikes you hard.
You're all alone.
You break down and cry, in your ridiculously overdecorated living room.
[S] Turn on the radio

In the midst of your depression, you decide that you need to calm down and listen to some music. You take out your radio and do so right away. You stumble across a song that makes you particularly angry.
Your sadness slowly turns to anger. You decide that these aliens have NO right to just snatch people up!
You will do something about all this!

Yes! You pick up the nearest thing that you can pick up, the radio, and take it to the roof!
You're going to show these aliens what for!
A one! And a two! And a THIS IS STUPID!
What were you thinking?!
You can't even throw that far! That music must have infected you with rage or something. You quickly snap back to your senses and climb back down.

However, that rush that the music gave you brought you out of your depression. You decide that something has to be done about this, so you decide to find your family. You think about what could possibly be a weapon in your house. You are at a loss of what to do, however.

You go in the basement, hoping there will be something there. Unfortunately, your basement has always been sparse. Your eyes, however, glance up to the corner and an idea strikes you.
You break off the pipe in the corner and water begins pouring in the basement. You realize that this isn't the smartest thing to do, but you can always fix it later and this is kind of an emergency situation. You have acquired a pipe to bash those aliens' heads in!
Now then... What to do?

You aren't all that sure about taking on those aliens alone. After all, those saucers are pretty high up and you don't think you can even get there. You decide that the first order of business is to explore the desolate landscape, searching for anyone else left behind.
A small spark of hope remains inside you, and you think that you can't possibly be the only one left behind.
Run up and down the street hollering asking if there's anyone there.
You decide that running and screaming is clearly the best way of finding anybody. Or rather, it's your only way.
"Hello? Hello?! Anybody there? You're not alone! I'm still here!"

That didn't really work out so well. Of course. You remember that your neighbors are nearby, the Reeds. They are very kind people, but they're a bit paranoid. They always lock the door, so there's no way the aliens could have taken them, right?
You knock on the door. No reply. You decide to try the door, and with a jolt of terror, you find out it's unlocked. You traipse in slowly, on the lookout for any danger.
Nobody here. Of course. You slunk down a bit, no longer on edge. But then, an idea strikes you.

You rush to the study and turn on their computer. You feel a bit guilty about doing this, but you're pretty sure they'll understand the situation. You open the news.
Oh... No updates at all. Not since yesterday. Wow, this really is worldwide.
Were you really out for that long? Did you sleep one whole day?
Just out of curiosity, you scroll down to the comments.
One of them jumps out at you.
You're not alone.
This news fills you with elation. Wisconsin? That's a bit far away. But then again, you really don't have anything better to do! You are about to jump up in joy, when a crash is heard behind you.
The first evidence of other life since you've woken up made you jump up. Not in joy, but in terror.
