About the Story
In a mid-fantasy, medieval world, Zéphyr awakes in the inn of a little village, where the mayor, the magician and the sheriff have strange behaviors. His initial goal is to find a lost book full of fairytales, but is this so important in a region which is almost at war?

I really liked the premise of this game: a young Storyteller asked by the local mage to find an especially evocative children's storybook.
I had wandered around the entire accessible map, enjoying the superb location descriptions. Maybe French is a better language for poetic ways of saying how a town square surrounded with linden-trees looks like? (Yes, the game is in French.) After a while though, I started noticing a particularly large amount of objects where the response to X was "You see nothing special about..." (translated of course.)
A better look at the title page and info showed that this is "un aventure en devenir." "An adventure in progress" that is. So I stopped. This version is from 2007, so I doubt the finished story will ever be published. Too bad, the descriptions are really good.
(I do keep wondering how this piece got 1st place in FrenchComp. Maybe because it's probably possible to play to the end, just very underimplemented?)
