First game I played, I was at the loading dock, while the alarm was almost max. I played an item card which allowed me to break the tech lock (raising the alarm by 10) and then interact with the room, allowing me to escape. I timed it well enough that the alarm hit 93 after my turn, and the security phase die roll was enough to raise the alarm past 99.
What would have happen if after using the item to break the tech lock and the alarm reached 99+, would I still have been allowed to interface with the room to escape? Or would the game just end before the item finished resolving?
The game ends immediately when it goes to 99. There is no more plays, no chance to bring it down.
