Not "epic", but very well crafted, May 10, 2010
by Nikos Chantziaras (Greece)
I don't tend to write many reviews about games I've played, but I felt I should somehow step-in here, at least with a comment: Recluse looks quite underrated to me. Every bit of it was enjoyable, and it did remind of the old classics.

Highly recommended, and it's not too long.

This game takes place in a single room but not always the same one. The room contains just one item, but again, there's more to it than that. Experiment and enjoy.

The call comes through. Of all the dicks; you get the call, sitting in the front seat of your car, hands shaking on the steering wheel. An urgent call; but all you were thinking of was the bottle in the liquor store and so that's where...
