A pleasing monthly story involving 'astrology', April 20, 2019
by MathBrush

This was an excellent addition to the Fallen London mythology. I played it several months ago, but forgot to write the review at the time, so pardon me if there are errors.

I strongly remember the 'astrological signs' in this story. Of course Fallen London is under the ground in a giant cavern, so the existence of stars and astrological signs is a somewhat contentious subject.

The story takes you into a strange world with insects and caverns. Very fun.

These beasts won't feed themselves. A puzzleless exhibition. Ten to fifteen minutes.

Nothing in this hospital is as usual. After a serious accident you have to figure out what happened and how to escape. Written to showcase the German library extension for Inform 7.

It will take some time to get through one game, maybe 15 to 20 minutes your first go? It has five possible endings. The original commissioned artwork (some glimpsed in the cover art) was made by the talented Kimberly Parker...
