I think I abused it., August 14, 2011

This was so much fun. It's basically a question and answer session that aspires to be poetic, and I must say I think it succeeds very well. I definately abused the poor thing though and turned it into a pornographic vignette. It actually handled my sordid little answers very well, much better than I was expecting. I think this is the first time I've been impressed by an Adrift game(if game is the word).

Still, I couldn't in all honesty give it full marks because even though it was novel and very interesting in its own way and made me laugh(which is always good in this world), I really wanted it to go somewhere. What I mean is, I would very much like to have seen this little game extended into an actual game, with the entire game that I played being fleshed out with a story and a full game-world. The poetic nature of it made a great impression on me too and just added to my enjoyment. I may even steal some of the ideas that have been demonstrated here if I ever get my own WIP off the ground.

Overall, very impressive. I really enjoyed it and am off to play it again.
