Women come to her when their husbands stray. She accepts not crude cash, but things of beauty. She will fix them- for as long as they live.
The Fixer is linear, but a delight to play through. Emelumadu paints a city where spirits and humans mingle; where believing in mysticism is common sense and practicality. She merges the absurd with the filthy; the beautiful with the pragmatic.
Emelumaduís writing is rich with flavour and beautifully detailed, even when she goes into sordid detail of a certain character. Her writing moves from being initially subtle - from hinting at the narratorís identity - to exulting in the narratorís strange abilities.
The Fixer also uses graphics throughout the story, though I didnít listen to the audio, and the story art is gorgeous and unobtrusive. A delight to read.
This is a Sub-Q magazine game, and the high production values show. Excellent use of images and imagery abound.
The setting is unique among IF that I have played: a west african city, where legends still exist.
Your character (written in the first person) is a person of unknown abilities whose job is to 'fix' cheating husbands.
It was an interesting story. I'm not a big fan of explicit content, and there were some fairly explicit sexual references, but violence and profanity were low.
The culture was very interesting.
