About the Story

"A short promotional piece of interactive fiction originally intended to kick off the new Wormhole series, about a young man caught leaping between worlds through wormholes. Since the series idea died and was deemed unprofitable, this little game is kept around as freeware."
[author's blurb, from The (Other) TADS Games List version 1.2]

Editorial Reviews

Baf's Guide

Short, buggy game, written as a prequel to a longer game. Your friend George has summoned you to his house, but you can't seem to find him, and there are all sorts of weird things in the basement. The writing is uninspired and occasionally downright bad, and the setting simply isn't very interesting; most of the game amounts to wandering around a generic house poking through red herrings.

-- Duncan Stevens
