Cute Enough, December 10, 2021
1: Is it complete and cohesive?
Yes. "And Then You Come to a House Not Unlike the Previous One" has strong game mechanics and always leaves a path for you to follow. There is more than one way to complete certain quests and a concise list of verbs.
2: Interesting Mechanics
The trippy-ness of the game was charming. However, the experience I got was different from what I expected. (Spoiler - click to show)I expected the repetitive houses to continue until and become progressively different in slightly creepy ways. The actual mechanic of jumping in and out of computers was interesting, but left me wanting for the mechanics of the premise.
This is my main area of issue. This game just isn't meant for me. It has a cute little story which explores impermanence in our lives, but I just don't care about (Spoiler - click to show)romance. I also found that I was more interested in the characters of the CompuDoctor and the Witch than I was in what were supposed to be the main characters.
Overall a decent game that allows for multiple solutions but tends to railroad for the sake of emotion. Provides a good atmosphere and an interesting enough story, but not my cup of tea.
