Walkthrough Comp
I think, of the games, this is the most successfully game-like. It also has some striking moments. I liked the Dreaming. I really liked the drawing-in-the-air. Some gorgeously surreal moments, a feature which this game shares with Dreams Run Solid, appropriately enough. This one is, I think, a trifle more cohesive, although (or perhaps because) it has fewer moments that stand on the knife-edge between beautiful and repellent.

TelegramComp Games review
Constraints answers the challenge of the comp by piling on nearly every strategy known to mankind. Where Dreams uses a surreal setting, Constraints uses four different settings, three of which allow "strange" actions: a world of magical realism, surreal dreamworld, the "real" world, and a fantasy world. The use of multiple disparate sections is itself a strategy for combining the multitude of actions found in the transcript. (Sean Barrett)
