Shakespeare is Broken!

About the Story

You play as William Shakespeare, who has been passing the centuries peacefully in the afterlife, writing occasionally and trying this thing called "pizza." That all crashes to a halt when he's summoned to the Central Office to fix his legacy.

It would seem that poor movie adaptations, misreadings, and just awful essays have allowed tons of inaccuracies to creep into his plays, and now he's being sent right into them to sort them all out.

Reunite Romeo and Juliet (uh, temporarily)! Make Hamlet depressed again! And... okay, your history plays are a huge mess. Nobody really reads those anymore. Seriously, good luck.

great potential; possible bug?, February 17, 2021
by WidowDido (Northern California)

This is a very entertaining game. Unfortunately, there seems to be a page with no hyperlinks (not even to back out/return to another section) that caused me to become stuck midway through the Hamlet section.
(Spoiler - click to show)After you have received gold from Hamlet, you can attempt to buy the calendar from the concession stand. However, when you have the money and select that choice from the wares (before showing Ophelia the coins), there is no hyperlink out of this.
I thought it made the game unwinnable, but now I think it is just a bug that appears if you do things in the wrong order. I had a similar bug with (Spoiler - click to show)being unable to get out of the car, despite clicking that option, unless another puzzle was completed first. Pressing the back key and doing the puzzles in another order was enough to avoid that bug.

I will complete this review after I finish the game.
