I wanted to like this more, April 14, 2013

I generally love C.E.J. Pacian's work, and the cover art was lovely, so I was looking very forward to playing this. Then I actually launched the game, and I found myself in a cell. And the cell door was open. Like, I didn't even have to escape the cell. And there was this boring bit of walking and not really looking at much because there isn't much to look at and the descriptions weren't all that engaging and CEJPacianesque.

I don't know what it is. Maybe it's the title of the game. Maybe it's that it's science fiction (not my thing). Maybe it's that it starts not so much on a railroad as a rollercoaster. Maybe it's that I hit a runtime error about a dozen moves in. Maybe it's that I was in the mood for saying damn the gender binary! I mean, we finally get into the Pacianisms, and that's amusing enough, but I still felt... well, not so much railroaded, more like I was in one of those little carts at Dollywood with a bar across my waist, knowing I was going to have to sit there and listen to the recorded dialog of silly people.

As I said, I like Pacian, so I stepped away for a bit, played something else, and came back hoping I'd start to really feel engaged. But I never really was. That makes me kind of sad. I think this is simply Not My Kind of Game. I decided to step away again, but this time I didn't come back.
