I like it a lot! It's clear how much work went into this. Although it was frustrating that I kept dying and had o click through the same room again. Other than that it was great!

Wanted to give 5 stars for the hard work and dedication you have put into this, but I had e to take a star off because nearly all of my attacks miss so much it's not even funny.

This is, by far, the best of it's genre. The story very well written, the interaction is just perfect, the HUD is clean and the vibe is very strong. Can't wait to discover new endings for this one!

this is probably my favourite text adventure of all time. I went back to play it again, and that's a lot from someone who doesn't even finish half of the games they play. the story is so, so clever; it's definitely a must-play.
