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.

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