People once said they were "in" psychoanalysis, meaning they were committed to a long immersion. In a sense, they were writing their autobiographies.

Well, think of this as a re-write of Aunt Nancy’s House, only with a plot. Just kidding - this is an original piece by a different author, though the "in your Aunt’s house setting" did remind me of Aunt Nancy. This game is cute, fun, and quite amusing at times, but unfortunately it’s a little rough around the edges. The author admits in the ‘hint’ section that he wrote the game in four days, and while that’s impressive given the scope of the game, he should have spent more time with the piece. Not for the first time this comp, I found several typographical errors and a programming error message. These glitches, however, were not so distracting as to keep me from the game, and I finished it rather easily. The puzzles are simple and straightforward. Once this one is polished up a bit it would probably be a great little game for introducing people to the concept of interactive fiction. Until that polish comes, however, Not Much Time just doesn’t outshine the competition. I would have only given the game a four, but it earns an extra point for including a newt in the game... I love newts.
