32nd Place - 22nd Annual Interactive Fiction Competition (2016)
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 mid-length twine game with sci-fi labs, graphics, text effects, world model, May 9, 2017
The game has a nice world model, with different locations and the ability to take and use objects. There are some fun graphics and cool timers and text effects.
It's a bit odd that you have to undo at times to move around the game, and there was an occasional typo (I saw the word maintenance room with two brackets after it), but overall it was a fun game.
