As for mimesis, this does worse than sin, April 22, 2008
by Tom Hudson (Durham, North Carolina)

The plot doesn't advance unless you read the "sample transcript" in the poorly-written PDF and learn the (uncued in-game) magic word there. Then you're forced into a conversation, which doesn't advance unless you play lots of guess-the-noun, or, again, read the sample transcript and find the nouns there.

Spelling, grammar, punctuation, and diction errors. Sparse implementation. Backstory through a tome of infodump that is sparsely implemented.
