Again, the title and teaser for the game scare me, but squids are always a positive aspect in any game, and so I load the file in pursuit of calamari. First impression: a well written, albeit corny prologue. And then, when I’m actually let loose to play the game, I find myself in a well-crafted world with some nice imagery and thorough implementation. There’s some good humor, and the puzzles are thoughtful and imaginative. I particularly like the ending, and the programming of the prose. I played through to two slightly different endings, and I really like how the game keeps track of where you’ve been (trust me, it’ll make sense when you play it yourself). This one is definitely worth your time - play it when you’re in the mood for puzzles and some light humor.
