A small fantasy ship with three tasks, August 1, 2017

Related reviews: less than 15 minutes

This game has you explore a small ship full of fantasy creatures like faeries and goblins.

It has one oddly inappropriate part, but nothing else really in that nature.

By visiting the Faerie queen, you receive a variety of tasks, about 3 or 4 in total. Each is a simple fetch-type quest or single action.

The game ends fairly quickly.
