'Will you survive or will you die? You are swimming through the ocean, trying to escape dangerous mercenaries who have planted a bomb on the mainland. Behind you, getting closer, is the largest shark you've ever seen. An explosion rips out from the shoreline and a massive wave flings you closer to the stunned shark's open mouth. You don't have much time, and you need to get to land. Do you keep swimming or do you climb onto the shark's back to ride to shore? Thirty minutes. Thirty paths. Can you choose the path to survive?'
