This game is a spoof of the raif community in the 90's. It draws from Curses, Jigsaw and the classic Roger Sorolla article Crimes Against Mimesis, as seen here:

http://pdf.textfiles.com/books/iftheorybook.pdf

despite building upon these sources, it's a whole short game on itself. Indeed the goal of the game is to commit some sins against mimesis, as observed by an ever watchful demon (or should it be a unix daemon?). Some fourth wall breaking jokes are at place and a few red herrings abound.

Not a difficult game, pretty straightforward fun for an IF beginner, even if unaware of all the context.
