A charming parser game with detailed graphics and constrained gameplay, December 26, 2020

This is a great game. I went back and forth on a 4 or 5, but there are so many great little details that I'll definitely go with the higher score.

This is an adventuron game with a detailed life sim. You have to keep up your hunger, happiness and energy bars. In addition, you have to solve little puzzles that your wife (or partner?) Pel sets for you.

There are numerous illustrations, especially for the puzzles. The writing is solid.

The story isn't completely original (what is?) but is executed well. The life-sim is a bit easier than it could be but fits narratively. The puzzles are all in constrained environments and occur one at a time, but require ingenuity and creative thinking.

Definitely worth trying out. It does require the graphics as an essential component of the puzzles, though, making it difficult for visually impaired players.

Thank you so much for your review! I'm glad you enjoyed it.

I do realize my game is unplayable for those with visual impairment. I was also worried about those who are colour-blind, so I did test with someone who is. As a puzzle designer, these are things we struggle with.

No problem! I don't have visual impairment, but I know a lot of people who play parser games choose them for that specific reason. So I put that comment as a heads up for them more than a criticism of you specifically!

It's good to know! I am not familiar with the community myself, and so I'm all for learning more about the audience who play these games.
