Neat game! I included it in my Spring Cleaning Twine Jam compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look. :)


**Spoiler alert. Don't read any further if you haven't played the game.

I really enjoyed this game, although it seems as if there is only one ending and the experience is how much meandering (or not) you do to get to it? (Having said that, it is in the spirit of the Monkey Island games.) It was lots of fun with very vivid storytelling and good humour.

I did, however, find the music to be annoying. While I liked it as music and think it all fitted the game's theme well I found I couldn't concentrate on the reading and comprehension until my brain had become used to the music and could tune it out.
