A time travel game for beginners, October 7, 2020
by deathbytroggles (Minneapolis, MN)

I love me a good time travel game and this one is fairly straightforward. Thereís a loose backstory about saving the world from cultists, and you must travel within the same small radius (eight to nine rooms) via four different seasons. Puzzles are similar to that in First Things First in that changes you make in one season affect change in others. An in-game map was quite welcome.

The game can adequately be described as terse. Thereís no flowery prose or a developing plot or anything heart-wrenching at stake. Most puzzles are intuitive, even if silly (Iím looking at you cow). While the game doesnít get in the way of the puzzles, it doesnít enhance them either. And since I had little investment in the results, I resorted to hints several times when I got stuck. Most puzzles have multiple solutions, with a couple locking you out of certain endings. There are eight endings, though mostly slight variations on another. While I don't see myself playing this again, I had a good time.

I have to give mention to an absolutely amazing tour de force of double-entendres that had me grinning from ear to ear. Below the spoiler:
