Friends, I have a confession. I have now played two Andrew Schultz games (this one and Very Vile Fairy File from last year), and they both have the same effect on me: as I stare at the words on the screen to try to make sense of them and respond in kind, my vision starts to swim, I begin to babble, language dissolves as words themselves decay into meaningless nonsense-sounds, and I feel the cold immensity of a vast, amoral universe that cares nothing for humanity and our feeble attempts to apprehend it through logic, mathematics, and language. Great Cthulhu can do his worst and Yog-Sothoth can get in line: I have played Under They Thunder, so all your threats are empty.

Thanks for this. I think you pretty much "got" my game and I was frustrated I couldn't make it easier to understand.
I think when starting it I figured a game with pig latin stuff in it couldn't be that big ... could it? But then I discovered one more thing, and one more, and so forth ... and it sort of blew up.
I wish I could've made it less forbidding. I was able to add some hints late, but I guess it wasn't enough. It's the sort of thing where I'm glad I explored things but I'm disappointed I couldn't make it clearer so more people would enjoy it.
