This was a great review, Joe. You definitely made me want to play it and I can almost imagine that I already have based on what you wrote. This sounds like it would be right up my alley.


"Too often we enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought." - John F. Kennedy on reality

"What if everything you see is more than what you see--the person next to you is a warrior and the space that appears empty is a secret door to another world? What if something appears that shouldn't? You either dismiss it, or you accept that there is much more to the world than you think. Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto

Good review that makes me want to play it also. I bought it a while back after hearing that a professor from my alma mater was one of the lead developers but never got around to trying it. Hopefully I will soon.

Thank you, gentlemen. I didn't know what to expect when I bought this game during the last Steam sales. It came in a cheap indie game bundle with a bunch of other great titles (Super Meat Boy, Braid, World of Goo, etc.) and I was pleasantly surprised by it.

Nice work, as always Joe.

Just one thing:

Each new situation adds to the addiction and stimulates your gray matter and your gall, putting together a solid plan on the fly and having the brass put it into effect, even when it seems you may fail.

This makes it sound as if 'each new situation' puts together the solid plan and has the brass to put it into effect, and not the player.

I'm thinking that you mean: "Each new situation adds to the addiction and stimulates your gray matter and your gall to put together a solid plan on the fly and having the brass put it into effect, even when it seems you may fail."


I don't have to prove I'm refined - that's what makes me refined!
