Great Job, Internet!: Kill some time with Stephen Colbert’s new game, Escape From The Man-Sized Cabinet
Are you missing Stephen Colbert this week, even given his newly launched “Stephen Colbert Has Stephen Colbert’s Daily Lunch With You, Starring Stephen Colbert” series? Then Stephen Colbert has a treat for you, fans of Stephen Colbert. The future Late Show host has launched a new interactive web game, Escape From The Man-Sized Cabinet. In the choose-your-own-adventure-style game, players can wander around the new Late Show offices, hoping—ideally, at least—to eventually be invited into a man-sized cabinet, a piece of furniture that listeners to Colbert’s newish podcast will be familiar with. Once inside the cabinet, gamers face all sorts of perils, from an “Ice Kingdom-type environment” to possible death from “Cabinet Fever,” but, hey, if you’ve got to go, at least you’re already essentially in a coffin.
