Good puzzles and retro feel... short and could have improved characters


The puzzles were well integrated and generally made good sense… although sometimes I found myself clicking a bit just trying to figure out what to do next. With that, I had about 4 hours for one playthrough. I played a second time to get complete Steam achievements.

The story… I found a bit depressing… I enjoyed the fantasy setting and I thought the final ending to the fantasy setting worked very well and was cute… and it does complement the actual ending well. I guess it felt a little flat because I didn’t really feel that involved in or connected to the characters. They were a bit two dimensional, especially in the real world… I think if they had more personality and we had more opportunity for idle chit-chat demonstrating unique, quirky personalities… that’s what this game needed.

It is a kinda nice tribute to Broken Sword… although the story is kept more simple and plausible. But the parallel stories and twists and turns keep it plenty exciting.

Disturbed by the ending...


The game itself is very good, but the story falls short with the final revelation. Ok, why not a game about that. But not like that, not with that kind of game, I felt kind of cheated by the game, I would have liked another kind of ending, more in the line of the rest of the game.
