I loved this game! The art style was pleasing, the music suited the feel of the game, the characters immediately showed individual personality, the object descriptions added a lot to the narrative, the scenes were intriguing, and the dialogue and inferred information show that there is a much larger story behind this and dip into it perfectly. All the aspects of this game complimented each other to create a spot-on ambient feel throughout, and the intuitive controls made it possible to jump right into the game and get immersed right away. I've seldom found games in this style, unfortunately (Home and its sequel The Journey Home are both great, and they're similar in style and storytelling fashion but differ in maneuvering and lack descriptions), but it's a fantastic change of pace from the loads of boring, storyless games out there. I'm looking forward to the "larger story" you mentioned in response to MikeyBlighe, good luck!

By the way, where can I find more games like this? I've never found one in quite this style, and I'd love to play others! (Sorry for rambling.)

Thank you Otil for your kind words!
I really hope to make a full-fledged point and click adventure game out of this, with proper puzzles maybe :P

I don't think I ever played Home and The Journey Home before and I quite enjoyed them (nice variations in the sequel while keeping the whole "interactive novel" approach, which I usually don't really prefer compared to usual point and click adventures), thank you! Very nice stories and characters.

About other games in this style... Uhm... Speaking of indie games, the first that comes to mind could be Precipice, another short adventure that also uses a "description bar", except it is always on-screen (like it was done on Future Wars by Delphine Software, back in 1989) and it is not really used as a "stream of consciousness bar" like I tried in The Fickle Hands of Fate.

Another one could be Among Thorns which is also great, for me. Also worth mentioning are the games by Eight Bit Skyline.

I have worked on my share of point and click adventure games, if you like the genre, like A Night That Wouldn't End, A Landlord's Dream or the Red Dwarf-inspired Fanbots. They are all "jam games", so nothing that will take you too much time to play! :)

If you have a little more money to spend, I would suggest you to consider buying A Night In The Woods, a very interesting, deep and polished game while being very easy to play.

Another one that oozes depth, character and mystery is Kentucky Route Zero. Also I can't wait to get my hands on the full version of The Dream Machine.

Wow, there are plenty of games! :D Sorry for the wall of text!
