Editorial Reviews

Baf's Guide


The usual from Rybread, though there's less here than in his others. Essentially, you're wandering in the dark getting semi-funny "you can't see" messages. Don't bother.

A room with multiple messages about how dark it is., February 10, 2016

The last of the Rybread Celsius games I played. This is pretty much nothing; one room with all exits leading to itself, with some random messages about how dark it is and a help menu with mostly blank entries.

What more can you say?

If Sparse Could Ever Be Meant as Generous, May 17, 2010
by AmberShards (The Gothic South)

Lack of Vision consists of an awesome introduction and very little after that: no plot, no puzzles, and only four rooms. Those rooms consist of the game telling you that you can't see. Nice, but I figured that out in the first 10 seconds of playing. If it's supposed to be a joke, what it's supposed to parody has been lost in the sands of time along with the humor. If this was a Speed IF entry or an IntroComp, it'd still rank lowly; as it stands, I guess we're supposed to be happy that the intro finishes? I want that minute of my life back!
