A modern-day fairytale in West Africa with some sexual content, February 3, 2016
This is a Sub-Q magazine game, and the high production values show. Excellent use of images and imagery abound.

The setting is unique among IF that I have played: a west african city, where legends still exist.

Your character (written in the first person) is a person of unknown abilities whose job is to 'fix' cheating husbands.

It was an interesting story. I'm not a big fan of explicit content, and there were some fairly explicit sexual references, but violence and profanity were low.

The culture was very interesting.

Dynamic fiction with beautiful art, October 24, 2015
by verityvirtue (London)
Women come to her when their husbands stray. She accepts not crude cash, but things of beauty. She will fix them- for as long as they live.

The Fixer is linear, but a delight to play through. Emelumadu paints a city where spirits and humans mingle; where believing in mysticism is common sense and practicality. She merges the absurd with the filthy; the beautiful with the pragmatic.

Emelumaduís writing is rich with flavour and beautifully detailed, even when she goes into sordid detail of a certain character. Her writing moves from being initially subtle - from hinting at the narratorís identity - to exulting in the narratorís strange abilities.

The Fixer also uses graphics throughout the story, though I didnít listen to the audio, and the story art is gorgeous and unobtrusive. A delight to read.
