Apparently created to give RPS users something to do when Rock, Paper, Shotgun goes down for maintenance or because of technical problems, 503 - Service Unavailable is a short comedy game.

As far as I can tell there are no real goals or win/loss conditions, just a small area to explore filled with a few people and object. All in all there is actually quite a lot to do and even if a action does not produce a real result often it has a unique response. All in all it is worth playing if you are a fan of RPS, but otherwise it is probably not worth your time.

  1. Still, it is the best page down page I've ever come across and lovely surprise.

    Oh, and great job finding the downloadable version!
