Editorial Reviews

The Breakfast Review
All right. There's stuff going on, and the story quickly takes a turn into cosmic horror and X-Files conspiracy, and just as quickly ... we're done. Whoa. I am not sure I understand fully everything that happened or what I just did, but that's the story and I think I actually found it kind of charming. It's the "you are a squid" line, I think, even if the last iteration seems potentially sinister. And how the initial research ties into the final denouement.

A fun little romp, October 4, 2016
by Cav
I'm pretty new to IF but I had a fun time with this game. It's relatively quick to play and solvable without too much brain-wracking.There are a couple of small bugs, but the writing is great and gently humorous. Overall this game really tickled me.

Octopus's garden, October 25, 2016
by Owlor (Sweden)
Tentaculon hasn't really done a good job advertising itself in the comp, but it is worth playing. It has an interesting, if sly tone, though I admit I would've liked playing the entire game as an octopus.

If you enjoyed Tentaculon...
