This is a fairly short science fiction game with 5 or 6 puzzles.
As the other reviewer noted, it was under implemented, with several locations having no description at all. There were other things that were strangely over implemented, such as a certain action in the first room having more than a dozen responses.
The idea was clever, overall, but the game has a real penchant for attacking the character with strong profanity and insulting many things that you do. It has a narrative purpose, but it seems like the sort of thing a young author thinks is intense and meaningful before they begin to get more experience.
I would have given 2 stars, but the puzzle bits were satisfying, so I gave it 3.
Apart from the classic amnesia at the start, the plot is quite original, based on the dark sci-fi version of a certain fairy tale (Spoiler - click to show)(pinocchio).
It's quite short, the descriptions aren't bad, but ultimately feels rushed, considering some pretty big parser bugs, unimplemented objects, understanding issues...etc.
A real pity, i liked the idea and the setting.
