Few would accuse this game of having a great story. It's somewhat of a confusing hodgepodge of elements from preexisting games and movies (I, for one, am pretty over Monty Python references), but despite those things, I found this game an overall joy to play. Figuring out the world logic and its mechanics was very entertaining; there are things I could call red herrings but they're the kind that, for me, add a bit to the game's mystique.
After finishing the game, I went that further step and text dumped it just to see how much I had missed. For the most part, I had missed little except that at least one of the NPCs was more conversable than I had realized.
For the most part, I found the puzzles fair although a few instances of "guess the verb" came up.
This game might not have a memorable narrative, but as a distraction, it excels.
