(I'm grading generously with four stars, but it is worth playing, and I wouldn't want anyone to be put off by a low IFDB average. It is the sort of exercise in which less is more.)
Note: Itch doesn't seem to play well with Chrome. Use another browser, it's worth it.
Recommended for: when you crave a faerie tale with genuine depth.
An interactive retelling of an old short story, April 26, 2016
It is an adaptation of an old short story about a Griffin and a church official that had a good grasp of location to begin with. Groover has assembled all the locations in the story into a coherent world.
The story itself is poignant and meaningful, which has led to its enduring popularity as a short story.
Overall, the writing is descriptive, and I enjoyed the interactivity. At the time that I played the game, there was more timed delays than I preferred, but the author was contemplating shortening them.
I would like speed control. Slash. Bookmarks.
