The Favored combines Russian Roulette type game play with Robotfindskitten cleverness book ended with cute ASCII animations. The game revolves around a hero stuck in a rabbit's burrow. In order to get to the next level the hero builds a ladder out of the bones and sinews of slain rabbits. However, unknown to the hero one of the rabbits on each level is favored of the rabbit gods. Attempting to kill this one will result in the hero being smitten by a lightning bolt. The probability of picking a favored rabbit in any encounter is displayed on the screen, 1 out of however many rabbits there are. As you slay rabbits the game keeps track of your cumulative probability and displays it when you are smitten to death or survive at the end of each game.
