About the Story
"La Noche del Ensayo" tiene sus raíces en los relatos de misterio con un grupo de extraños aislados en una lujosa casa donde algo sale muy mal. En este caso, sin embargo, no se trata de la aristocracia de los años 20 como en un cuento clásico de detectives, sino del elenco de una película, que se reúne en la actualidad a ensayar en una casa de campo. Y si bien habrá un crimen que los involucre, tu misión es que no se convierta en un asesinato...

Novel-length and suspenseful , August 23, 2019
I began playing this much acclaimed (see caad.es) game a couple of years ago, and I come back to it from time to time when new inspiration dawns on me. I'm now in act three, and the end still seems far away. Unprepared to write a full review, I gave this master work a brief compliment on another website. To my surprise and delight, Guillermo Crespi responded with a gracious and humbling letter of thanks! So I must at least make the beginning of a review in English. He and this work deserve as much recognition as I can attract.
This novel-length work is written in Argentine dialect. It's suspenseful and difficult. It's also superbly implemented and delightful to read. The NPCS, props, streamlined movement system (i.e. "ir a galería") all demonstrate how much effort the author put into making this work user-friendly and deeply immersive. It includes an in-game hint system. However, 'Undo' is disabled, so save often.
I've needed to resort to the hints more than I've wanted to, and this is probably because I'm not a native Spanish speaker. Perhaps larger breadcrumbs in the story itself would ruin the puzzles for smarter readers than me. Nevertheless, this is one of those games where you can have a lot of fun toying with the puzzles before finally admitting defeat. For example, (Spoiler - click to show)I had a lot of fun figuring out how to interact with the dog. Still, I needed the hints to tell me what I actually needed to do with him.
