Enjoyable few minutes, January 7, 2014
As someone who basically liked the game this is based on but isn't a fan of romance in the first place, I found this game highly entertaining for what it is. It's clever, but not groundbreaking. The prose is fun, and it's worth your time to check it out for the few minutes of diversion it provides. Does what it meant to do, and does it well.
