  Must be played with ADRIFT 4, Tue 27th Aug 2013
By Lumin - See all my reviews

This is a game that well deserves its reputation as a classic, but I feel it's important to point out that (though it's not mentioned on the download page) it was written using an older version of ADRIFT, and attempting to play it in the newest one will have you running into the same problem the previous reviewer (kittykitty) did and more.

I repeat, the game --is not-- playable using the ADRIFT 5 runner, you need to download ADRIFT 4 to experience it properly.

  Pretty pictures, but everything else is annoying, Mon 8th Aug 2011
By Duncan_B - See all my reviews

I said it elsewhere, I've never understood the appeal of this game. Personally, I think "A Party to Murder," which came out in the same competition, was better. I say "I never understood the appeal" and not "this game sucks" because I know there are others out there who must have seen something in it-- thus its placing 6th in IFComp. And maybe I'm seeing it differently because the rifts of time blah blah blah and "you youngsters never appreciate" yadda yadda, but it seemed to me to be a slow-moving, misogynistic mess with a confused plot written (somewhat poorly) for middle schoolers. That said, I've also never finished it, but I didn't feel like I had a lot of incentive to do so.

**While my comments on the game's content stand, I have re-evaluated my star rating for The PK Girl based on two factors.

1) The Official ADRIFT rating system is different than my own, and I would still call this work "Good" rather than "Average" amongst ADRIFT games-- it definitely stands out.

2) Despite my thoughts on it, do I think this game deserves to be up there representing ADRIFT's capabilities? Yes, as few other games do all that this one does.
