About the Story

The King, your father, is dead.

You have refused to take the crown and the land of Nowhere has instead evolved into a republic.

A simple invitation to the capital city of Lost sparks an epic quest as forces from Somewhere threaten war.

Venture through twisted landscapes with only your faithful dog, and a dry sense of humour, for company.

A puzzle parser in the classic style.

A cheerful and big game that needs some fixing up, October 7, 2019

Luke Jones has released many games, and has a definite style. His games are whimsical, kind of roguish (with a foul-mouthed pigeon), sprawling, with a big cast of NPCs.

They are also a bit spare. When he started with Quest games, they were above average for Quest games in terms of implementation. Inform games (which this one is) generally have room for smoother programming, and this game could use a litte bit of polish, both in synonyms and in typos (especially the problems with stray punctuation that inform has).

This is a sequel to The Bony King of Nowhere, featuring the same map, just a few years older. I played with the walkthrough, as some puzzles I had great difficulty in guessing.

My favorite part about the game is the frank and friendly NPCs, like Donella or the Wizard of Ounces (Oz). I also liked the tie-in with other games by this author.
