If to do were as easy as to know what were good to do, chapels had been churches, and poor men's cottage princes' palaces.

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.
