Well-written, decent idea Very interesting idea which is well-executed for the most part. I did feel that some of the letters had very vague answers to them with no logical way of discerning what the missing words could have been. That did detract from my overall enjoyment of the game, but other than that, it's a chilling story that kept me hooked.
Bounced off it immediately, tried and bounced again An interesting concept for a narrative experience with nothing mechanical to support it. Guessing blindly doesn't really qualify as a mechanic. The possibility space is too broad, and the result isn't really what could be called interactive since it is hard to become invested in a crapshoot. The narrative and prose, at least to where I stopped didn't wow, and are deficient in any real mechanical guidance. Ultimately, this is likely a premise better as an idea than a game, in this form or any other.
Really clever Really enjoyed this game, the story is a great framework to set up a series of word puzzles that don't feel shoe horned in - some of them are a bit tricky, but they give you that "I'm clever' buzz that you get from all the best puzzle games. (Saying that, I did have to look up one of the answers )
Won't let me finish I got as far as the upside down page, then it would not let me enter any text- click on the black bar and nothing happens. Guess I'll never be able to finish the game. Waste of money!
Fresh idea, very enjoyable There are three different personalities unfolding at the same time. To figure out the missing word, sometimes you have to consider the personality. The game never requires any cultural orientation. For example the hidden word is not going to be "lorry" vs "truck" unless a clue has been given. Several times I got stuck in the game, and I would just take a couple days and mull the problem. Eventually I would get the flash of insight. I don't think the game was too short. The game has to end sometime.
Great game, bad ending Gameplay is unique and well executed. Puzzles are hard without being impossible. Brilliant atmosphere and engrossing story. Ending is one of the least satisfying I've ever encountered - wanted to scream it was so lame.
