All Hope Abandon

by Eric Eve profile


About the Story

Your day got off to a good enough start when you met that blonde in the breakfast queue, but it's all downhill from there: you may be wishing you could escape a particularly dire lecture, but not by the one way the lecture has just declared impossible. For suddenly, you are lurched into limbo, apparently to experience the after-life at first hand. What will you find there: heaven, hell, or the blonde you met at breakfast?

Off-Site Reviews

Only a well-done game can successfully combine such elements as a rather detailed plot, puzzles of all sorts, a theologically dense theme, and Greek alphabet characters. "All Hope Abandon," though the prospect seems dizzying in retrospect, does all of the above and somehow manages to seem somewhat natural. [...] (Paul Lee)

[...] any reviewer will tell you it's much easier to write a memorable review for a flawed game; sure enough, All Hope Abandon doesn't offer much in this respect. At best, one could complain about the puzzles being too easy, which isn't much of a drawback as times go, and the most sceptical among the players would probably point out that the whole romantic plotline is a bit unrealistic, considering the protagonist and his beloved barely knew each other [...] (Valentine Kopteltsev)
