Excellent review, Jason. I just finished this game like 15 minutes ago and was totally pleased with it. One thing: third to the last paragraph, did you mean "whiny" NPCs instead of "winy"?

The game looks interesting. This review has convinced me to download the demo.

Also Joe, very tactful. The rest of us would be like "Venter you made a MISTAKE!"

I type too fast. Sometimes I miss a letter and don't notice it. That's clearly what happened here, since I definitely know how to spell "whiny." Thanks for the catch!

Hey, Venter, damn good review! I downloaded the game based on your recommendation. Couldn't pass up the $6.00 deal! Jeez! I'll let you know what I think. But thanks, regardless! I know I'm going to at least enjoy revisiting a classic genre with a whole new feel, like you point out.

Oh, one question for ya, Venter.... how long is the game, exactly? Trying to see if I want to fit it all into one of these upcoming weekend nights.

Going through it all in one long evening of gaming would be doable but maybe not a lot of fun. It's an ideal game for 2 or 3 nights, a few hours of play apiece.

Thanks for the advice; I'll be happy to stretch it out!
