The Phone is the interactive menu which may be used for ten different options. All players are provided with one at all times. Phones can be opened by pressing the "M" key or by clicking the menu icon in the bottom right corner. Phones are not inventory items, and thus cannot be revoked through normal gameplay.
All Phones have ten apps which can be opened by clicking on its respective icon. To close the Phone, the player can press the red "X" button, the menu icon, or the "M" key. There is a time display at the top of the Phone that shows the current in-game time in five minute intervals.
