A game with 5 sub worlds but spotty implementation, June 26, 2016
In this game, you play as a magical writer married to a magical painter.

Your house has been invaded, so you have to gain inspiration regarding your wife's paintings in order to enter into the worlds of your books and resolve one issue per world.

This is a great concept, but the implementation falls flat. Its hard to guess what you need to do in each situation, and the game is a bit buggy here and there. The last few worlds are less well described.

Overall, though, I may revisit this game, because its concept was good.
