Outstanding game, November 4, 2019
by Niprut (USA)
I've played quite a few IF games. This one is outstanding. It's immersive, intuitive, beautiful, and quite frankly, fun. At first, I was a bit thrown off by it's long, descriptive narratives, but soon realized that they are the joy of the game. Unlike many other IF adventures, where it seems to almost be a competition with one's self as to how quickly you can blow through each area, mind mapping and solving puzzles, this game does a much better job of wrapping you in it's beautifully illustrated world and guiding you on a fun New journey. It's main character and it's NPCs give you a deeper connection than what is normally found, leaving you with a more satisfied feeling than talking to let's say, "a Chuckie Cheese animatronic for 10 minutes." I had a feeling there was something different about this game after playing it for a while, then I looked up and saw the Author has become blind. Now it makes total sense to me. The lands, the characters, the story come from a bright imagination that longs to and succeeds in creating a world of vivid imagery. It's fun to close our eyes and meet her there, and to realize that for the rest of us who may yet see... How much we take for granted and how much that blinds us to all of the poetry that surrounds and fills us... If we look closely. Jenny Brennan, thank you for a great game, and we look forward to Future works of yours. BTW, I love having the option of either an evil or good ending...
