An oddball wizard apocalypse game with nice atmosphere, March 28, 2016

This game was entered in the First Quadrennial Ryan Veeder Exposition. In this game, you play as one of the last surviving humans after an apocalypse has turned most people into wizards.

The wizards can turn anyone else into a wizard. It's your job to escape! The games is fairly short, but has a well-thought-out notebook and help system. The world has been thought through pretty well, with a variety of spells and effects.

Overall, this is a fun, light snack and is pretty well-polished.
