This game casts you as The Packrat, and adventurer who is trying to fight their urges to take anything and everything they can get a hold of.

This is played up for laughs early on, but not so much later.

This game centers around 'guess the author's thoughts'-type puzzles, and as such is very difficult to finish unaided.

A ton of work went into this, but it could have used more polishing.
