Editorial Reviews

Baf's Guide


The opening scene of Recess At Last is very promising - well-written, atmospheric, and refreshing. The game itself, however, doesn't live up to these promises: the story turns out to be disappointingly straightforward and uncomplicated, and the puzzles - almost trivial. The game world seems to be developed pretty detailed (in spite of a few minor issues), but the player doesn't seem to have a sufficient motivation to explore it.

A short doing-homework simulation, March 31, 2018

This is an odd game. The author coded up a little puzzle where you find answer to homework questions and then type them in, together with one or two little fetch quests.

They then spent a great deal of time polishing that game and adding extra frills. But the core game is brief, and the means of completing it are clunky.

This is certainly a unique game.
