I'm not sure that it hits the mark on the subversion of genre.  I like the aesthetic and maybe there's a nihilistic bent or at least moral transcending humanity but it seems straightforward as far as text-adventire-interpretation goes.

I like the concept, and the descriptions and ideas are really cool. However, in a game that consists entirely of text, I think it's fairly important to have the clearest, cleanest english possible. Maybe ask a writer-friend to proofread next time.

Cool idea! I really like the concept of trying to communicate in another language (my game has a similar concept so I'm kind of biased :p). I did feel like I kind of guessed my way through the game, like I'm not sure how I was supposed to figure out what straight limbs vs bent limbs and right vs left meant? I really like the concept though and I think an expanded version has a lot of potential!

This was a nice game. It's calm and i often hate sci-fi so this is great. I really like it.
