Site doesn't work right now, but has an awesome 503 error, powered by [0].

    503 - Service Unavailable
    An Interactive Fiction by Horace The Endless Server Technician
    Release 1 / Serial number 110707 / Inform 7 build 6E72 (I6/v6.31 lib 6/12N) 

    HTTP Error
    You are standing at the entrance to Castle Shotgun. The gates are securely locked, with an unappealing sign on the front. The sign reads "Whoops! RPS is having a bit of a wobbly. Don't worry, we'll be back soon!"

    To the left of the gates is a large opening in the wall, which Jim is leaning into. John is perched on a small rock nearby, while Alec and Tim are standing on the other side of the gates. A pile of magazines is scattered in a corner.

    You can see Jim, John, Tim, Alec and a Refresh Button here.

Heh, I actually clicked the link hoping to see a cache of the 503 error.

You can play it here: http://error.rockpapershotgun.com/

For some reason, I the #content container has a width of zero. Try running `document.getElementById('content').style.width = null` in the console to fix that.

Ha, nice. Try talking to all four guys.

Now you've made me sad that I can't see the 503 error.
