Video Game: 3 in Three

3 in Three is a classic puzzle game for the Apple Macintosh, designed by Cliff Johnson and published by Cinemaware (and by Inline Design after Cinemaware went bankrupt); the protagonist is an instance of the number 3 in a computer. The game starts with the 3 being rounded off from a spreadsheet, just as the computer crashes. As a result, she is sent deep into the innards of the computer, where she has to solve a number of puzzles in order to get it working again, all the while dealing with a plethora of letters, most of whom have never heard of numbers and think that she's a damaged B.

Note: This game is available for public download at the official website. Everything players need to get it running is there, not only on the Macintosh, but on Windows as well.
