Time has lost all meaning in that nightmare alley of the Western world known as the American mind. We wallow in nostalgia but manage to get it all wrong. True nostalgia is an ephemeral composition of disjointed memories... but American-style nostalgia is about as ephemeral as copyrighted dTja vu.

In the end is a 1996 IF work by Joe Mason. It features a 'puzzleles' approach, some year before the more famous "Photopia".

It is pervaded by a strong melancholy: the main character starts the game attending at a funeral of a friend and starts wondering about the meaning of life. Going out of the church he'll interact with some other NPCs or visiting locations, but none of them will include a real puzzle.

The story has only one ending, that is difficult to be found because the game doesn't "suggest" it. Thinking "in reverse" about it, anyway, looks like no other ending could be possible. Nothing specia, anyway I suggest it if you like something 'puzzleless' and have a taste for 'sad' moods.
