About the StoryYou are the last magician on earth, struggling to bring back magic.
Oh, no. What a hard game I have made.
Maybe it could be easier.
The computer will play the game for you! How convenient!
Please write a review if you can. I would like one very much.
From the Author
You see, the writing's okay, but that's only from the author's point of view.
And I'll bet nobody will get the Enchanter spell references and the reference to H.P. Lovecraft's writing.
This one is a failure.

At a stretch, I could interpret the game's final question to the reader as representing the disdain of uppity authors for players who don't like their non-interactive interactive works. At least that idea is funnier than the transcript itself. I'll admit that the outro phrase raised a smile, though: "The game has completely and utterly stopped."
Some will complain that this game is not valid IF, but others have said the same thing about other one-turn joke games as well. You do have an option (singular) which gives you interactivity, although a very small amount of it. Magic Travels is best enjoyed as a satire about IF and common IF themes. It's not especially thoughtful satire, but what were you expecting? On the plus side, even if you hate it, it's very short.
If you enjoyed Magic Travels...
