You are a Maplebot!
Maplebots are tiny robots created in the likeness of Maple, who you all consider to be sort of a mom to you.
<<timed 5s t8n>>They're about two feet tall, looking like an extremely pick-uppable anthropomorphic squirrel-bunny hybrid with a lovely saw wave generator for a voice.<<next>>
[[But you're low on batteries.->corridor]]<</timed>><<set $lr = "Head back behind you">><<set $d1 = "Go through first door">><<set $d2 = "Go through second door">><<set $d3 = "Go through third door">><<set $d4 = "Go through fourth door">>The corridor, being built with the average human being in mind, looks massive to you. But as a Maplebot, you're used to that sort of thing.
There's not much else to say about it, the doors are unremarkable, and...
... where did each one of them lead to, again?
[[$d4|bedroom]]<<set $lr = "Head back to the living room">>You turn around and walk back away from the corridor. It leads into the living room, where you remember your moms spending a lot of their time.
Despite not being too spacious, the living room is impressively cozy with a couch and beanbag chairs pointing towards a tv screen with various gadgets and gizmos hooked around to it.
Bird-mom waves at you from the couch, looking away from the tv for a moment. Looks like they're watching a re-run, something or other about a steamed clam. You don't get TV humour sometimes.
[[Go back->corridor]] <<set $d1 = "Go into the kitchen">>You'd smell something tasty coming into the kitchen, but sadly, Maplebots are too small to have a built-in odor sensor.
Snake-mom is at the kitchen counter, chopping some vegetables while something's boiling on the stove and the snakes in her hair watch.
"Hi sweetie!", she calls out, noticing you come in. "I'm a little busy to play right now, but you can keep me company if you want!"
You find a corner to sit in for a while and the two of you enjoy each other's company, but your internal sensors say you should really find your charger.
[[Go back->corridor]]<<set $d2 = "Go into the study">>You push the second door in the corridor to reveal a bedroom-turned-computer room.
Beige and black boxes with blinking lights are sprinkled all over the available surfaces, mostly interconnected with cabling of varying colours between them.
On one side of the room a desk spans most of the wall, allowing for more of those devices and their screens to take place. Someone is sitting on one of the chairs at the desk, clicking away at things and paying attention to the changing lights.
She turns around once you beep at her and greets you with a smile before you run to give her a hug. "Hi there!", she beeps back at you while picking you up. "What are you doing up? Shouldn't you be recharging by now?" She gives you a little boop on your blinking snout and lets you go on your way.
[[Go back->corridor]] <<set $d3 = "Go into the bathroom">>The third door leads into the bathroom.
Come to think of it, you don't see Maple-mom or any other Maplebot come in here much at all.
Maybe you'll get it when you're older.
[[Go back->corridor]] <<set $d4 = "Go into the bedroom">>This room has a big comfy bed as the main piece of furniture taking space, where your moms sleep together. Strings of colored lights adorn every nook and cranny to give the bedroom a very pleasant atmosphere.
You can spot a couple of laptops tucked away while they're not being used.
[[And you can see something in the corner...->bed]]
[[Nevermind, keep exploring->corridor]] You found it! Near your moms' bed is your charging station, made to look like a tinier bed, the perfect size for you!
The charging stations are modular and can be slotted together so more Maplebots can charge together at the same time. And yours is a twin one, with another Maplebot already sound asleep, charging in her corner!
You climb onto your spot and make yourself cozy with your sibling, getting ready for a good night's charge...
