Steam and Sacrilege

by Phil McGrail


About the Story

The Automatic Hotel, once hailed as a symbol of scientific progress and invention, stands crumbling. Surrounded by protesters trying to save the historic landmark and mired in rumors about the hotel's once-great steam-powered automatons, the building now represents something much more sinister. It's the last place that you saw your husband alive.

You must find a way to enter the mysterious hotel and discover the secretes of its celestial prison. But more importantly, you must make a choice. Which is more important the life of your husband or the survival of humanity as you know it?

The Breakfast Review
It really feels as though the very narrow path to victory was implemented, and then the red herrings way off to the far fringe were implemented ... but all the background stuff in between the two was left out. Or possibly that the game was building up in more than one direction, and the remnants of those discarded ideas/puzzles were never properly edited out.
