Editorial Reviews

>INVENTORY - Paul O'Brian writes about interactive fiction

For me, a narrative layer a little more grounded in reality would have done wonders for my emotional connection to the game. As it was, I could admire the prettiness of the words, but only from a remove.

An excellent, short surreal game by the author of deadline enchanter, July 16, 2017
by MathBrush
Related reviews: 15-30 minutes

Deadline Enchanter was one of my first games I ever played, and still one of my favorites and a strong influence.

This game came before deadline enchanter, but shares its same feeling of utter bizzareness.

You are the ruler(s?) of a kingdom that has been ravaged by a ghost. There is wearable honey/history, and all sorts of other interesting things. I love this little game. It plays on gargoyle.
