About the StoryI've been to see the elders on the top of their mountain. I've got the cure for my daughter. It's time to go home.
Still undergoing development.

Pros: A cozy short story with nice background pictures and clear CSS and prose.
Cons:mmm. I can't remember if there's any.
It focuses on creating a world, without making understanding it a puzzle. It inconviniences the reader by putting everything examinable behind a link, instead of letting him skim at his will. There is no interacivity, but there are choices without effect. It is static fiction, and it doesn't want to be played.
The initial version didn't include the pictures as part of the download, the lack of which was my least important complaint. The structural issues are still a fundabental flaw, which make any merit from the story moot.
