About the StoryYou still remember well the moment that the professor shocked the orthographic community by announcing that there were, somewhere out there, 26 letters in all. Harness the alphabet's power to find the 23 letters that no living human has ever seen.
This is the IntroComp release of Spellbound, comprising perhaps the first 40% of the game.

It's a good premise, supported by enough puzzles to showcase the author's ingenuity and reflect the depth of imagination. Importantly for a potentially sandboxy game, Spellbound handles error messages pretty well, though in some cases the solutions to the puzzles were not as informative as it should have been. The game, though, feels complete: there's a path to the ending, and the proposed expansions involve making the game comprehensive.
It's an impressive effort, and while some of the locations feel like a bunch of narratively-relevant objects just rained down on them, I imagine it would be good if you liked Emily Short's Counterfeit Monkey or Dubbin and Parrish's Earl Grey, and are a Scrabble fan. This is one game that I would love to see finished.
