About the Story
What has two tongues but can't talk and follows us everywhere we go? Our lovely, leathery shoes, of course, the absolute last thing any person would ever expect to harbor a terrible secret. Fifteen-year-old Michael Cherry, for example, has no idea.

The Breakfast Review
The premise of the New Shoe being the lynchpin behind the Evil Plot defuses a bit of the tension, in favour of humour and whimsy. I don't know that it offers anything new or surprising, but it's a fairly entertaining story nonetheless. Actually, come to think of it, perhaps the tension feels surprisingly low, given the nature of the story. I'm not sure why this is.

This is a pretty long twine game with some dark humor, all about a conspiracy and a new shoe.
This game is well-coded, and includes difficult twine constructs and handles it well. The text seems mostly error-free.
The game handles puzzles much better than most Twine games. The annoyance of lawnmowering links was offset by the creativity of the puzzle design.
The writing wasn't especially polished, and the story was hard to follow in places. It has a single and unnecessary strong profanity near the start.

The world is full of Pogomen, and now that you donít have a job or family to worry about, you might as well get back to it!

A puzzle game about secrets in the Age of Lead. You've spent seventeen years preparing for an infiltration. Stealing the Confessor's secrets is only the beginning: it will all be for nothing if you leave a trace.
