Good concept, mediocre execution, August 23, 2009
The Edifice has you participate/spectate a few events occurring along the timeline of evolution of an anthropoid species (presumably, (Spoiler - click to show)Australopithecus, Homo Erectus, Neanderthal (?), and finally Homo Sapiens). It's an interesting conceit, and one segment has a particularly interesting puzzle in which you piece together a stranger's language... but in practice, it's just a little too clumsily put together, and somehow the emotional connection just never quite clicked for me.

If you want to try it without referring to the walkthrough, be aware that Edifice will expect some rather non-clued and non-standard language (for IF) in places.
