About the StoryThe year is 1929. You are Lil' Ragamuffin, the roughest toughest urchin in all of Garbagetown DC and the surrounding wastes of Montgomery County, but somehow the constabulary has managed to capture you and commit you to the city's highest security asylum. You don't aim to stay long.
Guttersnipe: St. Hesper's Asylum for the Criminally Mischievous is a humorously grotesque (or grotesquely humorous) game about a street urchin and her pet sewer rat escaping a sanitarium full of tinctures, brines, and other misbegotten 1920s health remedies.

A dialect-heavy dark comedy Quest game with symmetric map, November 16, 2017
You play as a cockney-speaking orphan who has penned up in a penitentiary-orphanage. Your goal is to go from Public Enemy Number 2 to Number 1.
The map is large, but pleasingly symmetrical. You solve a puzzle in each room until the game is over.
Some of the puzzles were fairly nonsensical, and I had difficulty with them, but overall, I was impressed.
