About the Story
What do a spaceship under attack, a lost tomb, and an alchemist's laboratory have in common? Absolutely nothing! The three games in The Knot have nothing to do with each other. There is no metapuzzle. The Knot never existed. Some problems cannot be solved. Some knots cannot be untied. But remember that no knot unties itself. You may need to seek help from an unusual place.

I have played IF before that had three games in one. This is the first time I have encountered one game in three. These games tell three sides of the same story and are in fact impossible to finish without each other. While I see that it could be confusing for someone who stumbles upon just one of them, I had fortunately already noted their connectedness and expected some degree of intertextuality, though perhaps not at such a level.
As for the game(s) [it|them]sel[f|ves] (referred to in singular from here on), I quite enjoyed it! The Knot features a very curious mix of cultural references, including, but not limited to: Nazis, spaceships, magic, alchemy, youtubers, fairy tales, Jabberwocky-type Nonsensish, and several religions, both existing and imagined. For some reason, for me, this mashup works rather well, probably because it actually feels linguistically grounded. The puzzles in The Knot are easy, especially since they are overly clued, which is done in a very funny way, and the whole thing should take no more than half an hour to play.

The house is growing. Or perhaps it's you who is shrinking. And with all this extra space is coming....time. Time enough, maybe, to make some changes.

The world is full of Pogomen, and now that you donít have a job or family to worry about, you might as well get back to it!
