It is a pleasure to have played yet another excellent game from Peter Edwards. As usual, it is well designed over a relatively small number of locations and indeed there is no need for a map in this case. It can also be completed relatively quickly, depending, of course, on how long it takes you to solve the puzzles! Even knowing that Peter’s games involve thorough searching, I have to admit that I struggled in a few places. The game has now been up for over 4 years, however, so other players had similar difficulties, meaning that the response comments from Peter covered all I needed to know. My one regret is that I didn’t try a bit harder before sneaking a peak at these additional clues!!

Great game, lots of clues throughout if you can figure out what to look for. I'm fairly new at these games so I had to get some assistance, but overall very enjoyable. Some great moments. :)

The popular puzzler! This man's games are quite intriguing, albeit tricky! If help is ever needed, though, reading through or ask in the comments for helpful hints!

This dark little story is well done with it's small map of riddles. Nice creepy and lonely setting that.... kinda made me glad I'm playing midday around people. But then, I'm a bit of a scaredy cat.

Thanks, Mr. Peter Edwards, for a darkly lovely game.

The only reason I gave this a 4 and not a 5 is that it was a little short for my liking, but what you do get is a well-rounded text based survival horror romp that'll have your brains smoking. I thoroughly enjoyed my time in this game, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone who likes a good text adventure.

Another fun, high-quality game! There are quite a few ways to die in this one, so I was actually put at the edge of my seat and took care to save often. Definitely a recommendation for text-game enthusiasts!

Excellent atmosphere and writing, clear and vivid descriptions, gripping storyline, challenging but solvable puzzles (with hints... heh heh heh). Overall a very well done game!

Very spooky -- but Good Triumphs In The End. Thank you for another brain-stretching set of puzzles, Peter. Alas, I've now played all your excellent games: can we hope for any more?

An amazing game. I specifically liked the subtle, yet quite overt hints. Although, I have to admit, I am not accustomed to sounds in a MUD, so I jumped a little at that vampire-appearing scene :D

Anyway, great game, and thanks for the tip.

Thanks Peter, I had thought that I might need to tempt a rat out of the portcullis to provide a more substantial snack than the spider which I'd been carrying around since the beginning, but just hadn't tried the most obvious way to attract a rat! Anyway, I eventually figured that out and have now finished the game.

Congratulations on a fantastic game, great setting, atmospheric and evocative descriptions and some really lovely, challenging but soluble puzzles make this a great game that I would very highly recommend to anyone looking for entertaining and challenging text adventures. The commands and gameplay were very intuitive which I greatly appreciate. I very much look forward to your future games!
