About the Story

With a familiar crackle, you come into existence once more. You find yourself in a broom closet and you wonder why you are needed.

In the beginning of the game, you have to work out who (or what) you are and why you are needed. The barman in the adjacent pub can help, but first you have to help him so that he will unlock the front door.

High strangeness, May 5, 2021

An intriguing demo that ends just as it's getting started. The player-character is a fascinating enigma: you "crackle into existence" in a pub closet, covered in bandages: NPCs are familiar with you, as if you've worked with them before, but who you are and what you do are only partially revealed. In contrast to the player-character's mysterious supernatural nature, puzzles are mundane: fix a leaking pipe, retrieve something stuck in a tree, unlock a gate. Just as you're about to flex your powers, the game ends. Successfully does the job of an intro scene: I want to see more!

A small, underimplemented puzzle game with some intriguing backstory, May 17, 2021

Related reviews: 15-30 minutes

This game takes the basic premise of the PunyInform jam (starting in a pub with a knife through a note in the wall) and take it in some fun directions. I enjoyed seeing the author's backstory developed for the main character.

The puzzles generally aren't too hard once you know what you need to do, although, like most of the games in the jam, it would benefit the most from more beta testing.

The main idea of this game is that you are a sort of revenant or mummy that can be resurrected over and over by use of a mystic knife. You have to speak with an inspector to help solve crimes. It's mostly a prologue of a longer story idea.
