Great, long, puzzly game for lovers of history, NYC, and A Mind Forever Voyaging, February 3, 2016

This well-researched difficult game takes characters on a tour through the history of New York, much like A Mind Forever Voyaging took players through a fictional city's history.

Unlike Voyaging,this is a very hard puzzle game. I've been playing many early XYZZY awards, and this is a classic late 90's game. Excellent writing, clever puzzles, but no way on earth you'll get them. Multi-object puzzles involving creative uses of items from every area of the game, bizarre required actions, etc. This is not bad, it's just the period's ideal. I used a walkthrough the whole time.

I loved the writing, and the obvious love of the author for New York and its history. The various ranks you get correspond to real historical New York mayors.

It's on the same page as the game itself. It's called lostny.sol, but it's just a text file. If you click on it, it will open in your browser.

Thank you very much! I will use it as little as possible.
