I should declare my biases straight away with this one, I think. I hate puzzle-fests. I don't hate puzzles, but I need something else to go along with them. In other words, solving a puzzle isn't a reward in itself for me. Especially not unless the puzzle is clever and original (as in Psyche's Lament). So I'm really not in the target audience for this game.

The writing appears to be decent, although its only purpose is in providing a frame for the puzzles. The tone is humourous, but not funny. The conversation system is menu based, with no divergence, so the player is reduced to going through each option.

I got bored very quickly, found I didn't care at all about the game and soon typed "quit".
