Our Kickstarter campaign has received $74,000 from over 2,000 backers! TV Tropes 2.0 is coming. There is no stopping it now. We have 4 days left. At $75K we can also develop an API and at $100K the tropes web series will be produced. View the project here and discuss here.
Apathetic Citizens: While the player may react accordingly to the various floors, the NPCs will respond in the same way a lead weight responds to being harassed by a gentle breeze.note In other words, they won't give a damn.
Artificial Brilliance: Parodied, the website says that the AI is brilliant enough to get in the elevator.
Bread, Eggs, Milk, Squick: Besides walking, there are only three things that you can do: Check your watch, cough, and slap people.
Dem Bones: One of the random passengers that can accompany you onto the elevator is a skeleton.
Uncomfortable Elevator Moment: The period of waiting for the next floor to appear can often become this. Also, NPCs who join early will sometimes stay with you for the ENTIRE ride. They even make comments, like "shouldn't we...be going somewhere"?
