Er... "There are no puzzles, the idea is mainly to wander about in an interactive environment and have fun." Well, it's a house. You can do stuff.
I apologize if I'm taking this wrong, but somehow I get the impression that the author has spent a lot of time being bored in this house. I mean -- I wandered around, I turned on the tv and the video game machine, I turned them back off, I poured myself a soda. Then I went back upstairs. Yeah, I've spent a lot of time at relatives' houses that way. I suppose that means it gets realism points...
Technically, it's fine; everything pretty much works right. Although the tv in the master bedroom can be heard all over the house, which seems pretty loud. Heh. There do need to be a lot more synonyms. ("book" "shelf" as well as "bookshelf", that kind of thing.) And the implementation of a room with two hot water taps and two cold water taps, while functional, can probably be approached more realistically. :)
