Guttersnipe: St. Hesper's Asylum for the Criminally Mischievous by bitterkarella

The year is 1929. You are Lil' Ragamuffin, the roughest toughest urchin in all of Garbagetown DC and the surrounding wastes of Montgomery County, but somehow the constabulary has managed to capture you and commit you to the city's highest security asylum. You don't aim to stay long.

Guttersnipe: St. Hesper's Asylum for the Criminally Mischievous is a humorously grotesque (or grotesquely humorous) game about a street urchin and her pet sewer rat escaping a sanitarium full of tinctures, brines, and other misbegotten 1920s health remedies.

Special thanks to play testers Davy B, Sarah Adams, Jake Strick, Capslock, Norman Rafferty, and Steph Cherrywell! And to Davy B for additional coding and problem solving!

Your Guttersnipe games have so much character! Like the first one, this was a delight to play :) Your writing does a really good job of steering the player in the right direction while not hitting them over the head with super-obvious hints. In addition, there were also lots of extra responses that made the game feel more rich. (such as "give percy to cat" and all the different responses when I tried to use the pocket-watch on people)

It is a privilege to be the first person to review this the second of the Guttersnipe series. It is actually the third one I've played and up to the very high standard of the other two that were submitted to Spring Thing 2017 and 2018 respectively. I found this game the most straightforward so far. That is possibly connected with it being more linear but getting used to Bitterkarella's style must also be a factor.

Like the other two, the humour and writing are excellent so full stars again.
