Editorial Reviews

Baf's Guide

A work that can call itself an anti-game pleno jure. As such, it's OK; unfortunately, the genre has already been explored thoroughly enough as long ago as 1995 by Neil deMause in his Undo.

Fails at being a horrible game, June 22, 2019

In the PTBAD series, which is generally an ill-conceived series of intentionally terrible games, this one manages not to be too terrible. It has generally smoothish implementation, not-too-hard main puzzle, and a poem that has crosses the line from awful to sublime.

Uses Adrift 4.0.
