Tales of the Traveling Swordsman, by Mike Snyder

Great mid-length game, December 6, 2016
I loved the ending. I'm not sure what I should say about it, but don't give up on the game until you get to the very end, because it is worth it.

The atmosphere was rich, but not overwhelming or misleading. As a player, you aren't subjected to the mini-game of "Guess the verb," which is a refreshing change from the frustration that can drive one to ragequit. The puzzles are not too intricate, but you're not spoonfed the answers either. Many things I didn't expect were actually implemented (taste lock -- You can't eat the lock), so I suspect there is a good amount of amusing content to discover. The provided walkthrough is also well done in a more conversational hinting style than usual.

The perspective of the player character is great and the development almost so subtle that I hadn't realized how I felt about the character until the Epilogue. A rich and celebratory perspective on people living full lives with disabilities.
