About the StoryYour last trip up the stairs before you can relax in a nice hot bath brings you into rather unfortunate contact with a toy car left carelessly on a stair, and your head connects with the wooden banner near the top.

For the most part, I really enjoyed this game. I thought that the writing was quite well done and at some points I was really drawn into the story.

Tryst is not an easy game, but well worth playing for its huge entertainment factor, its lovely literary style, and its marvellous Western atmosphere.

A polished Western about traveling worlds. Old-school puzzler, May 4, 2016
This game is a Western, a rare setting in IF. It starts out in the modern day, but things soon change.
The writing is descriptive and based on real locations and people known by the author.
It's hard to say more about the game without giving it away. Suffice it to say, this game is a real treat for puzzle fans, but probably not going to please those interested in story alone, as the story is 'gated' behind a series of complicated introductory puzzles.
This is perhaps the best puzzler game I have played that was not nominated for any XYZZY awards and did not enter a comp.
