About the Story
Everyone's heard stories about the old mansion on the hill. Decades ago, they say, old Doctor Black lived up there all alone. Until something happened—nobody knows what—and he vanished without a trace. The house belongs to the Historical Society now, it's turned into a little sort of local museum. But the south wing has always been closed to the public, and they say that's where it happened. Where he was murdered.

This game was made in 4 hours, but has about a dozen beta testers, and it makes sense, as it is very polished.
This is a game where you explore a dark mansion with a lightsource and a helpful notebook. You are trying to find a ghost, and have to navigate around, dealing with blocked passages and places your light can't get through.
The atmosphere is generally creepy, especially since someone died there in the past. The descriptions of the dark areas are especially evocative.
Overall, it's a clever game and has some heartwarming parts.
I think it could still do with a little more polish, even with the cadre of testers. That's to be expected for most speed-IF, but it would make sense for the author to add on to it, since I could see people liking it in the future. The commands I think would be useful to have responses to include(Spoiler - click to show)POINT POINTER or STACK BOOKS, or X ROD.
I liked this one quite a bit. I used hints 2 or 3 times.
