One thing I really like about this game is that it is very characteristically English. Trilby's grappling umbrella is a "grolly", the Beeb is on the telly, and the recently deceased DeFoe heir went to Warwick Uni. (I have a mate who went to Warwick.)

Too many adventure games are either generic, could-have-been-made-anywhere affairs, or desperately want to be American (*cough*Runaway*cough*). This is one of the benefits I see with home-made adventures, I think they (sometimes) retain much more quirkiness and personality.
