A really fun game well worth playing. The only drawback was that I could not save the game. The undo function came in handy. Beautifully written and has an intuitive story line. Some of the puzzles can be difficult until you get into the mind of the writer. I was only disappointed in how short the game proved to be. Overall a game worth playing.

This was a pretty good game. The storyline was excellent--a little more surreal than fantastic, but excellent nonetheless! It was intriguing, and full of unexpected twists and turns. Beautifully plotted! The spelling and grammar were wonderful, which made reading the sometimes long descriptions easy and enjoyable.

The puzzles were relatively intuitive and made perfect sense within the context of the game.

I gave this game a 4 rather than a 5 for two reasons. First, because it doesn't make use of "the usual" text adventure commands, which makes the game play a little difficult as you try to guess the right verb to use. A number of times I had the answer to the puzzle very quickly, but couldn't figure out that exact phrase to make the game do what I wanted. And second, because of the game's presentation: I'm blind and use a screen reader; the game put commands and their resulting actions all in one paragraph, so the screen reader would have to re-read lengthy descriptions before it got round to giving me the results of my intended actions. This was frustrating and slowed the game down, but likely won't be an issue for sighted players and might not even happen if you're playing offline!

All in all, it's definitely worth playing!
