About the Story
Deshaun has spent his adult years - all five of them - working on a space cruise ship, setting light and sound cues for untalented Lido deck performers. Waking up hung-over on New Year's Day, he vows that this year his life will change. He doesn't know how correct he will be.

This game is one that I changed my opinion of over time. When I first played it, I skimmed it quickly, and I sort of dismissed it. I liked the sentence-shortening puzzles, but the text was confusing.
After reading several good reviews over the course of the competition, I'll admit, I revised my opinion due to popular opinion. In this case, I went through, and re-examined the writing, and I realized that it was a good depiction of a character that I disliked, rather than dislikable writing about a bland character as I had initially assumed.
For me, this places the game in the same category as Savoir-Faire, which had a similar roguish protagonist.
This is a high quality game; I'm giving it 3 stars only because I didn't connect on an emotional level. I feel like others will enjoy it even more than I did.
