Thanks for the feedback everyone!

subpixel - Finding unique keywords for bits of paper was indeed difficult! Do you remember where you were or any extra info about when the lines started vanishing? - I haven't been able to reproduce the bug.

Citizen Of Melee - I promise there are lickable items! I made the game in Unity.

I love old-style interactive fiction, so this is a big hit for me! Well done, and a very interesting story and use of theme. I like the typewriter-style font, too! Gives it a certain je ne sais quoi!

Aww, this was a fun throwback! You were only missing one convention from the old days: just entering look or examine by themselves should give you your surroundings and exits again.

I don't know if you needed the audio either. I think in the end it added a false sense of crime drama tension that ultimately made me more anxious than helped set the scene.

I think your layout was great: the big north-south spine was easy to tease out, and you kept yourself to a nice shallow, easy to understand structure hanging off of that. The writing was nice and flowed well from scene to scene. I bet it was tough finding all the different unique keywords for scraps of paper :)

Unfortunately I couldn't finish the game. At one point after visiting every room and doubling back to work out the rest of the code, the interpreter locked up: any lines I typed just vanished with no response. I'm curious enough to try again at some point though!

Overall, well done!

Disappointed that over-promised and under-delivered in the "licking" department. Really interesting game though - what engine did you use? We didn't get far enough to really pull together the story but will try to come back to it. What we did see was well written though and we enjoyed it.


"Lick skull", ok, I admit it. I licked every item on the game, haha.

Nice game! It brought me back to my old Commodore 64. Unfortunately I always get lost so easily on these games, and couldn't get to reach the end. I'll try again later :-)

Very interesting story! I included it in my compilation video series of the Rainbow Jam '16, if you'd like to take a look :)
