## About This Game
In every door lies another memory, and every memory unlocks another door.
There’s a flash of white, and you suddenly find yourself in an unfamiliar
place. A locked door keeps you enclosed in this small, empty room — well,
empty all except for the table that sits in the dead center of the floor. Atop
that table sits a rotary phone, completely unplugged. The walls and carpet are
uncomfortably plain, the camera in the corner not helping with that
discomfort. After a few moments, the unbearable silence is finally broken by
the ringing of the rotary phone. There’s nothing left for you to do but answer

Hi! This is Conner. I just wanted to say that this game was very much made as
a way to deal with some really intense existential fears of death. This was
just sort of my way of coping with those big ideas. Even if those fears or how
personal this game is to me isn’t very apparent in your playthrough, just know
that it’s a project that really meant a lot to me and made me feel a bit of
comfort. I hope that if you struggle with these same fears, you’ll find
comfort in it as well.
All music in Summerland is original. You are more than welcome to record /
stream your playthrough.
