The writing seems a bit awkward, forced, with occasional grammar problems and poor descriptions. "Object x is here, object y is there, and over there is object z. There, I think I've listed everything without too much of an attempt at being interesting."

Some crazy little implementation problems exist. >X BOTTLES returns, "You can't use multiple objects with that verb." >X BOTTLE returns, "Which do you mean, the eighteenth century bottle or the eighteenth century bottle?" "18th" is not a recognized synonym for "eighteenth." And, finally, >X EIGHTEENTH CENTURY BOTTLE returns, "Which do you mean, the eighteenth century bottle or the eighteenth century bottle?"

While the non-conventional plot and PC were a decent starting point, implementation problems and lack of imaginative writing made me drop the game rather quickly. Also, what kind of a name is Mr. Luvya?
