About the StoryYou've found it at last - the chest containing the Treasure of Phlegm. Now, all you need to do is get it down from the tree. A cannon could help, if you can find the tools necessary to fire it...

One minute you're in Ancient Mayan Ruins, the next at the End of the World. Add a series of blatant, gratuitous rip-offs (the needle in the haystack from "Nord and Bert," the llama food and Restaurant at the End of the Universe from Douglas Adams' works) that don't fit in at all, and some thoroughly motivationless, illogical puzzles [...] and you've got a great contender for absolute rock-bottom last place.

This is a light, fluffy souffl' of a game, with not a single serious thought in its head or point of view to hammer home. It's fun, it's amusing, it's charming, it's easy to play and it has a built-in hint system if you're stuck.

An early surreal game with a ferret sidekick and nonsensical puzzles, February 3, 2016
There is really no rhyme or reason to the game at all, but your pal Leo will give you hints. You explore moose lodges, ancient temples, and the end of the world, while collecting crayons.
Fun for fans of nonsense-surreality, or of good npcs.
