About this game

Only a perfect servant can solve a perfect mess! Being the perfect gentleman's gentleman or lady's lady doesn't make you an angel. Can you untangle your employer's knottiest problems with elegance and unruffled grace? As the valet or lady's maid of Rory Wintermint, you'll go head to head with recalcitrant aunts, light-handed houseguests, manage a fox hunt and corral exotic birds!

"Tally Ho" is a 600,000 word interactive comedy of manners by Kreg Segall, where your choices control the story. It's entirely text-based—without graphics or sound effects—and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

It's England between the wars, and the 1920s are roaring! When your employer, a proper young gentleman or lady named Rory Wintermint is summoned to their aunt Primrose's country house Ritornello for a weekend, it's up to you to make everything run smoothly...or not! Glide gracefully behind the scenes to arrange everything from the flowers to their love life, or leave Rory to their own devices as you pursue crime, adventure, and romance! Will you lie, cheat, and steal to ensure your employer's happiness, or will you insist upon personal integrity?

• Play as male, female, or nonbinary; gay, straight, or bi, and even poly.
• Help Rory sort out their love life, or sabotage it utterly.
• Solve the case of a mysterious sneak-thief--or join them on a crime spree.
• Aid spies, evade the law, calm flighty flappers, and unruffle Aunt Primrose.
• Win an Exotic Animal Show and a boat race fairly, or cheat!
• Dance the lindy hop, or a graceful waltz—or just tut disapprovingly.
• Ride trains, motorcycles, zip-lines, bicycles, horses, and rusty jalopies!
• Jazz it up in the Jazz Age, or remain aloof and cool as a cucumber.

You'll be swinging from the chandeliers or serving the canapes in this madcap, but altogether elegant comedy.

This Jeevesian text-based adventure is a lot of fun and quite a challenge to achieve a desired ending. I played through a half dozen times at least to find all the narratives, with surprises each time! Have tried other stories by this dev. They put a lot of thought into the choices, and insert a lot of humor and emotion into the characters. Well done.

Really fun so far, but man I wish there were save points or restarting at a chapter instead of all the way over. I legit kept going back to start when I messed up over something minor or a wrong tap. The story has a lot of branches so trying to remember what I already choose exactly so I could keep the character choices I developed became difficult. This is frustrating on several levels, but replayability was affected the most. Still, it was a great game. So 5 stars.

The writing is delightful, mostly funny (in a British sort of way, which is very fitting) but serious/heartfelt when it needs to be. The only downside is that there's NO save/checkpoint system, which means anytime you accidentally tap the wrong thing you either have to suck it up or start over. As far as I know this is a problem with all COG games, but it really does take away from the experience.
