Very funny writing, October 20, 2007
by Fredrik Ramsberg (Stockholm, Sweden)

Of course, this is a small game. Of course, it's not polished - there are plenty of typos and grammatical errors. The setting is surreal, and it's far from obvious how to "win". That's less important anyway, because as you wander around (the three rooms), examine stuff and try the weirdest actions you can think of, you get to see enough funny writing to make it well worth your time. This game proved to be an excellent little diversion for fifteen minutes or so!
