A pure word puzzle game in a gridlike world., June 3, 2016
Andrew Schultz is known for taking a word puzzle idea (like anagrams or reversible compound nouns) and running with it. Most of his games encourage you to explore the world first to figure out what the theme is, so I won't give away the theme in this game.

The world is spare and empty, but this helps identify key items. The game is also highly polished, with no bugs or typos that I am aware of.

The mechanic in this game is harder to do by hand than his other games, resulting in either frustration or grinding, unless you're in the mood for it.

Overall, this game works, but his other games (especially shuffling around, threediopolis or their sequels) worked better for me.

Achievements, catch them all and other stuff. by Xionix
Looking for some IF with achievements, like, collect the 50 golden coins, or if you type 20 wrong commands you get the newbie achievement, or if you type "use hat in head" you get the "IF hater-to-be" achievement, well you get the idea.
