Verbs

  • TURN (When closed) You turn the key at the back of your music box.
  • TURN (When already turned) Better not. You wouldn't want to over-wind the clockwork.
  • OPEN (When closed and turned) The music box in your hand begins a slow dirge, sounding somewhat distant. A low groan is heard underneath the melody, giving a creepy quality to the music, though it is unclear whether the sound is a malfunction of the box or not. The spider turns slowly, its eight legs moving ever so slightly to the music as though it is trying to escape its box prison.
The music box in your hand slows, the notes becoming long and drawn-out.
The music box in your hand plays its final notes before the spider's legs curl beneath it, as in death.
