What game?, November 16, 2014
by Sheogorath (New Sheoth, The Shivering Isles)
Related reviews: broken, useless, friendly yet unintentionally(?) unhelpful author
I would like to be able to say that I played Saturn's Child and loved it, but since the first part of that statement is untrue, then the second must be, too. The author's site being dead was also completely unhelpful in locating a working copy of the game.
EDIT: Followed the revised link provided by the author, only to find it as unhelpful as the first, possibly due to the compression of the .t3 file (I've never got a zipped TADS3 game to open yet). The Electra Ink website also remains parked, meaning that I can't visit its homepage, and I can't help wondering if this is indicative of the amount of effort Jerry Ford put into his 'game'.
