Really Really Really Tall Building

2383: You climb up to an empty metallic room. As you step in, the doors slam shut sealing you inside.

"No Mr. Bond," a voice says, "I intend to kill you!"

At that moment, the room shrinks into a 8x8 foot pod with windows on all sides and begins to fall, crashing into each floor below it.

You black out and wake up with the shards of the building spilled around you.

You're in the basement!?

That can't be right! This is floor -1!

2397: You step out from the stairs to find yourself in a white room that is well lit and reflective, almost like the walls are made of some sort of glass. Along one wall are 2 vending machines and a classic arcade game called Elevator Action. It's distinctive theme music plays as the attraction mode displays a character going between floors of a building, getting files from rooms and dodging hat clad bad guys. It triggers something in you, a faint sensation that the reason you keep going up is because something is following you and you have to stay ahead of it. You use the vending machines to stock up on supplies and then realise that one wall you thought was painted differently to the rest, is actually a rare window. You step over and look out. In front of you you see black, broken up by twinkling stars, you look down and see far below you a planet curving away from what must be the base of this tower. You marvel at how far you have come but again you feel the urgency that says you must keep going. You look around you for stairs to go up, but instead there is some hollow glass tube. You step over to it and feel an uprush of air. You take a deep breath and step in to the tube. As it lifts you up to the next floor you wonder what you will come across next and if you will ever reach an end.

2399: A sign saying: "The last floor was decorated two years ago". There is another room. There is a tree, but it seems a whole lot smaller. There is only one present, addressed to "me" from "me". Calendar says 2021. There's a laptop on an eternally lagging videocall.

2400: A spaceport with passenger ships arriving and leaving is on this floor. There is a lounge and tubes going off in all directions, leading to docking ports, you hesitate, unsure whether to continue up or find a ship to leave on.
