An overbusy and complex glulx card game with multimedia features, May 10, 2017

This game is primarily notable for its extensive use of multimedia with glulx, more than any other previous glulx game.

It's a card game where you take turns playing cards that affect a world. The writing and images are detailed and compelling.

However, I felt that there was just too much going on in this game. The game window has a ton of doodads and images, and the effects were very complicated. I will admit I was in a hurry, though.

Overall, fun as an idle game, and interesting as a tech demo.

I like the premise, it's entertaining, but it's not lasting for me, December 4, 2016

The text hints at a wide game world; yet the game is only a sequence of card games against nondescript opponents. If you win 5 in a row, you win the game. I had expected the games to become more challenging with time, and in a way they were; but it seemed to me that the game difficulty was due to the luck of the particular hand of cards that I was dealt, more than anything else. The computer opponent didn't seem to become smarter. The card game itself is entertaining, but not enough to make me want to play again. It may be that it's too easy -- I won 5 times in a row, I never lost.

I would have liked to see a bit of story to develop with each game. Maybe seeing variations in the game.
