Editorial Reviews

>VERBOSE -- Paul O'Brian's Interactive Fiction Page

Basically, the two salient features of this game are its disregard for making sense, and its propensity to express itself in verse, sometimes free, sometimes blank, and usually with end rhymes. As such, it's a highly experimental game, and while I think both of the experiments fail in this instance, they illuminate some remarkable territory along the way.

A puzzly game in poetry, August 1, 2017
by MathBrush
Related reviews: about 2 hours

This game does two interesting things: everything is in poetry, and you are in a place where space and time are warped.

This is fun, but the game is really very difficult; it's hard to have any idea at all what to do. Much of what you do is based on paradoxes.

I enjoyed this game with the walkthrough, but I don't know how it would be without it.
