My player wakes up, examines a sofa, finds remote control to tv, go's to another room and get's batteries to remote control, opens tv with it. In tv comes weather forecast, it says it 's going to rain. Player has to take laundry from outside to in the house, so that it doesn't get wet. But what my player do with the dry laundry? Any ideas?

I thought a little and I decided to as follows: The player take his working clothes from laundry, and goes to work. He is a piccolo in hotel, but he is also a thief, who steals costomers jewelry and so on..

What is a piccolo? He plays the instrument?

Why does he have to do all that laundry stuff before he leaves?

Piccolo is a a man in hotel who carries customers suitcases to rooms. And the laundry system is just because it was so funny to code.

I like the idea of a hotel working who is a thief - stealing costomers stuff etc. Could have loads of fun writting a game on that subject. But, what has the laundry got to do with him being a thief? I can't see how that would fits into the story.

Can't say I've heard of a hotel worker called a Piccolo though.

I don't think it is: Piccolo
