A simple five-dollar bet gets drastically out of hand.

This level is a loose adaptation of "The Last Question", a short story written by Isaac Asimov.
Also featuring a little bit of art by mothbeanie!

Let me be the first to say that this level is mind-blowing with its narrative. Though I haven't read the original Isaac Asimov story, this brilliant retelling gives me great feelings of wonder and raises a number of interesting philosophical questions. I can't recommend this level enough - and I have a great urge to check out the original story as well. Good stuff! :viridian:
