This game is the best-developed inkle writer game I've seen. I tried it because it won the venerable Grand Prix competition.
This game is centered around a tightly-developed world model. You wake up in a strange white room and have to figure out where you are and what's going on.
This of course is the premise of dozens of IF games (including, most famously, Babel), but where Tag Der Toten shines is in its strong narrative voice. It's full of goofy humor, but it's clever goofy humor, essentially a conversation between the PC and theirself/the narrator through the use of the links.
I found the game very descriptive. Also, inkle writer can be easy to lawnmower in a parser-like world model, but the author has provided several surprises to keep you on your toes.
I give three caveats to my 5-star rating:
1. I love amnesia games.
2. I love German stories.
3. This game is not complete, in that the author plans on extra chapters being added later. That said, it took me about 2 hours to finish. However, I am not a native speaker.

Your first day on the job wasn't going to be pleasant. Such was inevitable. It's a big change. And, you are autistic. But this was a different story, far worse than unpleasant.
