Editorial Reviews

The Adventures in Alan v3 Blog

All in all, this is a long game and has a great number of objects and locations which on the whole have been well-implemented. The puzzles are well thought out and make sense, the only problem is that they are clued often inadequately. The prose is fine and uses versatile vocabulary. If you donít like the macabre kind of humor, this might not be for you. Anyway, it is a coherent and well-written game so you should give it a try in any case.
