About the Story

Sometimes you spend a day, a weekend, or an entire week drinking cheap Shiraz by the boxful. And sometimes you wake up alone and amnesiac in a strange place.

Took 2nd place at the 1st Annual MetaFilter Interactive Fiction Contest.

A Valiant Effort, April 14, 2009
by Parham Doustdar (Tehran, Iran)
The game is very well written, if not very well polished. There are a few guess-the-verb situations that might prove a bit of a problem, or, in worse cases, don't give an answer at all, but still, with a little bit of effort, you can get the verb. Apart from the technical issues, the story is well done, and (at least for me) the disappointment from the way the puzzles are done doesn't stop you from continuing the game because of the almost fascinating story. You'd like to see where you've ended up waking up anyway, wouldn't you?
