A game with three nonintuitive puzzles about Psyche from mythology, April 27, 2016

This game is about Psyche, who is cursed by Aphrodite after ignoring rules about her husband Cupid.

In this game, you are given three tasks to complete. Each has a special trick to it, and one involves graphics.

The game has some pretty big problems with guessing what the author is thinking, including the first significant verb you have to use after the prologue. Two of the puzzles depend on assembling complicated equipment and using another unusual command.

The writing was descriptive though, and everything was well-polished, so I'm giving it 2 stars.
