The game follows AM's test on the five victims.  Each of the tests involves the flaws of each of the five people. Gorrister has had to deal with the mental instability of his wife, as well as the controlling nature of his nagging mother-in-law and his father-in-law who does anything his wife wishes.  Benny will do anything to make himself look good, even at the expense of others.  Ellen is a caring individual, but is mentally disturbed.  She will go hysterical at the mere sight of the colour yellow.  Ted is a bigot who tricks white rich people into thinking that he was a rich individual himself, and has fallen in love with Ellen.  Nimdok is the worst of them all, as he murdered and tortured thousands of Jewish people during the holocaust.  The game has multiple endings based on the civility of the choices the player makes during each of the character's tests.

==Notes==
* In order to run the IHNM demo, it needs to be launched as "s.exe vesa", so that it can switch to graphics mode (noted in the Mobygames page of the game, too)
