Editorial Reviews

>INVENTORY - Paul O'Brian writes about interactive fiction

One of the keys to immersion in IF is detail, and Blue Sky falls well short of the mark. I don't mean to be too harsh -- the game is obviously well-intentioned, and with a substantial overhaul of its writing and a considerably increased depth of implementation, it could become a lovely evocation of Santa Fe. Until then, if you're looking for travel IF that really works, go back and play She's Got a Thing for a Spring.

Explore a bit of history in New Mexico, April 18, 2016

This is essentially a tourism game, like the non-puzzly parts of Bolivia By Night or The Race.

You are late to a tour of a Plaza in New Mexico. The game shines in its wonderful descriptions of New Mexican history, and the feeling of wonder. However, the game is under implemented and puzzles are a bit odd.

A short game.

Great for fans of the American Southwest.

Not bad but mostly pointless, October 31, 2007

A curious short story about a tourist lost in Santa Fe and looking for his group. Simple, with retro-style puzzles. Ultimately too insubstantial to be satisfying. At least it doesn't make promises that it can't keep.
