Editorial Reviews

Happy Ever After is a modern fairy tale with a dash of science fiction thrown in. The storyline is original and the game has some good puzzles, especially Merlin's alchemy machine, although I found the doors a bit of a mystery.

A long fantasy time travel game in an uncles' hotel/museum, July 16, 2017
by MathBrush
Related reviews: 2-10 hours

This game seems strongly influenced by the previous year's massive Mulldoon Legacy. You are investigating your uncle's museum/hotel, and you discover a crackling energy portal leading to ancient times.

The game has some tricky puzzles, and the published version is in fact not completable. However, the source code provided does compile correctly.

I found the game to be fun but to have way too many 'guess the author's brain'-type puzzles.
