Reminiscent of classic Infocom games, April 28, 2017
I very much enjoyed this game.

[I'll give BRIEF descriptions, to keep this as spoiler free as possible.]

The story is very well-crafted, and it's extremely funny. I laughed aloud at least every four to five turns.

The puzzles and riddles were spot-on as well. (Not too difficult, but not too easy.)

The NPCs (that means 'non-playable characters, for those of you who are new to the IF scene) are extremely enjoyable. (HINT: (Spoiler - click to show)Sometimes you need to 'ASK so-and-so ABOUT such-and-such', and sometimes you need to 'TALK TO so-and-so' -- depending on the situation and the NPC.)

Here's a question: do you enjoy a good pun? This game's packed full of them!

It has a satisfying ending as well.

Overall, I found it very enjoyable. (Did I say that already?)

If you miss the old-school parser adventures, then give this one a shot! I bet you'll be glad you did!

-----------
One note regarding the version of the game available from textadventures.co.uk as of 4/28/17 5:30 pm, CST (which I believe to be the most recent version):


Do not read this until you've officially declared that you are stuck.
(Spoiler - click to show)

If you are stuck at any point, try examining things. Sometimes you need to examine one thing to discover another.
