About the Story
Far out past the edges of the solar system lies a smallish chunk of rock. This is the planet Rupert, and it is a monitoring station for the Grebulons. The goal of the Grebulons is unknown, even to them. All they know is that they're supposed to monitor something, so they have been secretly watching Earth for a long time, studying its inhabitants.

Didn't quite finish the game, but I figured I should leave my thoughts here since it doesn't have any other player reviews at this point. This is a pretty straightforward "get the keys" parser game with plenty of rooms to explore in detail, given a slight humorous twist from its misanthropic alien perspective. It's not as blatantly meta (up to now) as I expected from the blurb.
Personally, I stopped when I had (Spoiler - click to show)gathered three of the four puzzle box pieces. I assume the fourth is in the safe, which I have no idea how to open. I'm just not feeling motivated enough to ransack all the rooms again, even with the vague guidance from the hints. Also, looking ahead in the hints, I'm afraid (Spoiler - click to show)figuring out the final puzzle, given my current lack of demolitions knowledge, might require the sorts of internet searches that raise some flags.
Sorry to leave it there — I would have liked to see how it all turns out. This is probably a better game for more experienced old-school parser fans.
Link does not work, therefore I can't play it but it sure sounds interesting.

A text-based game without puzzles, challenges or wrong choices. There’s just the path that you take and the things that you see. Think of it as an afternoon stroll through an ancient landscape. You are a shepherd returning home.

Sitting on the cold side of Mercury, you've waited two months for space debris to drift through the system, caught in the sun's gravity well. Satellites make for great salvage, and you've earned enough before to scrape by, keeping the...
Games with an abrupt and unexpected ending twist by dutchmule
I'm looking for games which, as in a lot of short stories, feature a sudden and unexpected revelation/twist at the very end of the game, that possibly changes your interpretation of what the game was really all about. (but please be...

I love to review games. Let me know if you've made a game that needs more reviews, or can suggest someone else's! I might not be personally able to review every game due to time, content, or platform, but I'll try!
