Reverse-Engineering Unmanned

For today, your homework was to play through "Unmanned," by Molleindustria. This text is somewhat more complicated than Hair, Nah!, but still works to make its point through deploying game mechanics as rhetorical devices.

One of those devices here is the system of "medals" for certain achievements -- "Excellence in Shaving," for example -- but sometimes its hard to tell which decisions lead to which awards. Let's try and figure it out!

Work together (in a small group if necessary) to try and reverse engineer every possible medal in this game.
