About the Story

In this well-crafted one-room puzzle, you play as a wizard gambling everything for a chance to gain immense power. In a deep underground sealed chamber, your spell summons an egg from another reality into your drawn pentagram. How will you deal with this egg? Decide wisely and quickly, or soon you will be dead.

A good short game, October 22, 2013
by streever (America)

This was a good, short, "one puzzle" game.

The only real frustration was an incredibly hard to guess game of guess the verb--there was no real clue or suggestion that what I was doing had any bearing on anything, and if I hadn't read that the game was beatable, I would have assumed it was a broken implementation.

I won't give any spoiler here: the game is beatable (and fun!) and worth playing. Just be prepared for a moment of frustration...

The writing is clever and enjoyable, and the puzzle is fun--I recommend playing this game.

Solved without Hints by joncgoodwin
I'm very interested in hearing truthful accounts of at least somewhat difficult games (or games that don't solve themselves at least) solved completely without recourse to hints, walkthroughs, etc.
