Off-Site Reviews

The "puzzles", as the walkthrough generously refers to them, are all of the mundane lock-and-key variety. There are multiple endings, but none of them seem relevant or even worthwhile, since your character has almost no personality and your quest no substance. I would suggest this fiction might be better told in a non-interactive medium, such as a short story, hopefully forcing the author to be more focused in both preparation and execution. But as an interactive world it is ultimately a sloppy and uninteresting chore. (by Nate Dovel)
