Editorial Reviews

The Breakfast Review
I like the tone of the story, for the most part. There's a certain sense of "gentleman adventurer" about it. I've never actually heard someone use the phrase "old chap" in real life, though my reading assures me that it's normal for a certain sort of British adventure story of a certain era; that, and a few other stock phrases help to put me in mind of those stories. They're faintly ridiculous, but comfortable.

A short-to-mid length goofy twine game about adventure, May 10, 2017

This is an entry in the 'I'm so wacky!' class of games. The text is a garish yellow, and the plot is disjointed and wild. It lasts for a respectable number of turns, and has some basic puzzles.

The author is completely committed to their writing, though, and they did a good job conveying the emotion that they wanted. This game is not really a bad little 'snack' if you're just looking for something quick and mildly amusing during a lunch break.
