Editorial Reviews

Guess the Author
"Is An Escape to Remember worth playing? Well, I spent most of my time intensely annoyed with it and not having much fun. But if the game's premise intrigues you, by all means try it out. If you get halfway through the game, it's worth playing to the end." (Greg Boettcher)

"The story starts out with a timed puzzle with a sort of secret agent / escape from a locked room premise and ultimately morphs into a surreal, almost Roger Zelazny finish. In turns it's easy, difficult, serious, silly, well written, juvenile, buggy and error free." (Mike Harris)
