About the StoryPiece of Mind is a short, humorous work which uses the first person "puppet" concept from Scott Adams and other early games and examines the possible causes and consequences of being so controlled by the player. On the way to insight into the protagonist's nature the player will come across some parody (X-Files, cheesy SF), some poetry (real and instant), and perhaps even the odd moral dilemma.

-- Carl Muckenhoupt
The switching of tense - from first-person past in the introduction, to first-person present in the main framework, to an omnipresent third-person tense for a sub-"plot" - is a very ambitious hack of the Inform grammar. [...] Try to give your entry a little more plot and consistency.

A meta-game about the role of PC and player, May 22, 2016
The game explores the interaction between player and PC, while a mysterious voice gives dark quotes in the background.
The game is very descriptive and the writing is good, but eventually holes start showing up, and the puzzles can be very unintuitive and frustrating.
David Welbourn has an excellent walkthrough for this game.

You should carry the bag. I'm more of a delegator.
