I just finished playing the game and really enjoyed it. I really enjoyed the layout and interface. This is the natural progression of Text Adventure games that was completely ignored back in the late 80’s early 90’s when the genre faded. There were issues, do not get me wrong. Basic editing problems with typos and grammar errors, as well as having to fish for the right command to enter, but that is expected.
What the Cabrera Brothers created was science fiction at it’s core, a look into a world. There are little nuances in how the world works, its technology and atmosphere that is reminiscent of the great sci-fi films and literature of the past. What makes this even more exciting is not what they have created, but what they will create.
Being their first work creation, it shows. There are flaws in design that people can nitpick and bicker over all they want, but that does not change the fact they created something! You have to start somewhere, and they started off on a great foot for independent developers. I want to see what else they can do. What more will be made from them. Their idea was great and was executed solidly. The story itself is irrelevant to the world they made and it was a VERY interesting world. They encapsulated some of the core ideas that makes interactive fiction great. It just needs refinement, which can only be done through experience. I applaud you guys for making this and I enjoyed it without a doubt.
I have been a continuing fan of the interactive fiction genre since the mid 80’s and can safely say that this was a blast to play. Money well spent.
