When you set out digging too deep..., November 13, 2013
by Ray

...you might just as well bury yourself along. But you'll enjoy the experience nevertheless! All the time I was wondering how the author was going to get away with his wild premise... (Spoiler - click to show)And I'm afraid he really didn't.

Much text, few choices, October 4, 2013
by Ray

This CYOA is fairly competently written and mildly amusing at first, but gets increasingly boring when the player, or should I say, reader, is bombarded with page loads of text with only a few and useless choices to be made. The story is improbable enough to make me lose attention while at the same time not wacky enough to keep me entertained (unlike the author's earlier piece about bees). So I skipped from about half-way through till the unspectacular end.

Expletive-spiced nonsense, August 7, 2012
by Ray

A game representative of adolescent fiction - full of anger and expletives, apparently trying to convey some artsy-fartsy gloomy-shadowy emotional anguish while sacrificing a consistent storyline. I suspect it would be highly possible (but just as pointless) to procedurally generate this sort of crap.

Second installment, in constant quality, May 30, 2012
by Ray

Another fresh gust of creative juice from a widely unrecognized and probably soon forgotten IF author.

True to his nick, NOM3RCY doesn't pamper the audience with polished language or nuanced story. Rather, he delivers his unrelenting historical message in a harshly unorthographic manner, which is surely going to raise at least a few eyebrows of an IF purist. As the drama continues and the unsettling main plot unfolds, there is a brief sense of advancement by the protagonist, which is however soon offset by the reintroduction of the original horror/mystery theme.

The fans, who barely managed to get through yesterday's holding of breath, now bite their lips nervously, looking forward to a conclusion of this epic trilogy. We still expect some final answers to questions raised in the prologue, although our current level of anticipation matches the author's literary prowess.
