When a noble life has prepared old age, it is not decline that it reveals, but the first days of immortality.

I got stuck in a huge box and jettisoned into space without ever realizing that I'd got myself into a situation from which there was no real return. And I hadn't saved. And I heard that this was the sort of thing that was going to happen to me over and over, so I didn't bother trying again.

What I saw of the game was adequately implemented, light-hearted, and pleasant, but it didn't leave me with a burning ambition to find out what happened next. On the other hand, had this not been a comp entry, I might (might) have been inclined to keep playing despite the fact that you can easily make the game unsolvable without any warning whatever. As a comp game, though, it lost me.
