6 of 6 people found the following review helpful:An instantly compelling premise is failed by hopelessly broken implementation, November 12, 2016
Let's start with the good: I LOVE the concept of taking a steampunk setting and looking forward to the present day, when all these glittering gears and robo-men are a part of history. This game suggests a steampunk haunted house, a combination of science fiction, ruin porn, and horror which would be an absolutely fantastic setting for a game. Unfortunately, this isn't what it delivers. There seems to be exactly one correct path implemented, and stepping off it snaps the game like a dry twig--and it's not at all clear what you're intended to do. I only managed to get through the opening scene through exhaustive trial and error (all the while being told I couldn't see or interact with things around me).

The game opens up a bit once you get to your workplace. You might want to check out the walkthrough (there are five walkthroughs but they all start the same...)
That said, it is still rather clunkily implemented. But it definitely gets less linear and more trad-parser-game-ish. And the story develops in surprising ways.
