Fantastically well written. The tone shifts from mysterious to hilarious are so smooth. I felt the ending was a bit abrupt, but if not for that, this could be my favourite Ectocomp game ever.

Thanks so much for the kind words! :D

This kind of reminds me of a guide to mushrooms and toadstools I saw once. Some of them had descriptions like: Smells like: Decaying meat. Tastes like: Rotten eggs. Side effects: Known to frequently cause liver failure. And it was like what? More than one person has actually put something that smelled that disgusting in their mouth to know what it tastes like. Blergh!

Anyway, nice work on the game. I was feeling quite disorientated wandering around the forest looking for 0.01c mushrooms.

A bit long but it was nice read and I like the inventory addition where you could anytime check your snackpack and  you discover a bit more depending on the path you take. Good read.

Really awesome! Loved the guidebook, and the reference to Everest "landmarks" was chilling.
