Calm down. All you have to do is write a thousand words and everything will be fine. And you have all day, except it's already noon. [blurb from IF Comp 2008]

I heard about this game through the Eaten by a Grue podcast. This unique and awesome game only took a few hours to complete, but it gave me some great belly laughs and had me thinking outside the box.

Very clever! It's clear a good amount of effort was put into this. The responses are hilarious and it's super fun how interactive this story is. The puzzles were a bit absurd at some times though and can be absolutely impossible to guess by yourself. But otherwise a fun one! Would recommend!

Sophisticated, elegant game. Extremely responsive to commands and player improvisation.

I loved the level of interactivity and the amount of things you could play around with. However, the storyline is kind ridiculous. It makes you go back and forth so many times, including if you forgot to do something. Especially dealing with Violet's annoying personality, the nagging to this extent is unbearable, but I guess you have to be able to make it so that everything is executed in chronological order, but still ridiculous. Otherwise, great game!

Some of the puzzles were very absurd and required a good amount of guesswork. It was funny though!

I honestly had my attention grabbed when I had the option to turn heteronormativity off.

The writing and puzzles were clever and I enjoyed the responses to actions, but some puzzles just seemed straight ridiculous. Idk to this day what that rubber square was or how the hell it was used the way it was. Some objects weren't listed when examining things so I didn't even learn of their existence until using hints. By the end of the game, I wanted nothing to do with Violet. Literally thought "screw her dude" before I could get through the game. (and then the end confirmed my disdain for her).

This is far more a comedy than a romance and I like it that way! Great writing alongside the puzzling.
