About the Story

It's not fair. First day on the new job, and it looks like the end of the world is happening. A silly little Speed-IF. But can you solve it?

A diabolical finale to the hard puzzle trilogy, June 11, 2017
by MathBrush
Related reviews: 2-10 hours
This game take the purposeful obfuscation of the last 2 games and ramps it up even higher. There are numerous independent NPCs, every turn has an ongoing story, the stool and parts from the first two games shows up, etc.

Decompiling again got me the ending, which was a fitting ending for this trilogy of games.

The writing may be interesting to even those who haven't played the first two games.

A little dark for my taste, but..., January 8, 2016
by Deboriole (San Diego, CA)
I have been obsessed with this series since the first Hard Puzzle came out. I have to say that the atmosphere of this installment is a little dark for my taste, but the solution makes sense (or as much sense as is possible in a surreal game like this!) just like the two games before it. Aside from the monstrous atmosphere (which I did not care for), this game was very satisfying to puzzle over and solve. Thanks Ade McT!
