Wacky idea with good writing but too fragmented, December 6, 2020
by brwarner (Vancouver, BC)

A silly game about trying to get to work. I donít have too much to say about this one. The imagery and absurdity are fun and absurd, but after an ending or two I didnít feel that motivated to go on. I think this world would be fun in a larger game but I donít think it is, in and of itself, enough to carry it this micro-story for me. I was kinda hoping thereíd be something more when I finally unlocked all the endings but alas, no. The humor is very reminiscent of something like Fallen London, which I enjoy (at least, I enjoyed Sunless Sea) but itís missing the meat for me.

But I guess thatís another way of me saying I want more? I did see some other reviewers get a lot of out of it though, so this game is clearly doing it for some people, which is cool.

Actually, now that Iím reflecting on it, I think what I would have really liked is one single, more fleshed out tale of a trip on this network. The 10 tiny stories is what didnít do it for me.
