A non-traditional piece intended as a metaphorical, locality-based fictionalization based on the values of a pessimistic worldview. Inspired by the writings of Thomas Ligotti.

Intended to be played with Generator code visible.

  Less than I expected, Tue 23rd Aug 2011
By - See all my reviews

I immediately liked this game because it had a strange spooky atmosphere and was well written. I was looking forward to exploring a variety of locations but as it turns out there is only actually two. There's also very little to do here and I wasted a fair amount of time trying to find ways to interact with the game. Eventually I gave up and opened it in the editor to see what I was missing and it turns out pretty much nothing. I was disappointed to find so little scope for interaction in this interesting looking piece of interactive fiction. I'll definitely be looking for other pieces by the same author though in the hope that they will contain a bit more to do.

  Weird, but not wonderful, Wed 24th Aug 2011
By David Whyld - See all my reviews

ďA weird little arty experiment of a gameĒ is what I thought after a few minutes playing this. Nicely written but not much to actually do. The author recommends you play the game with the Generator open, but this doesn't really help matters much and after several minutes of randomly trying things and getting nowhere, I resorted to keying in commands at random from the Generator in the hope of finally making some progress. No such luck. As far I could tell, it doesn't look like itís possible to make any progress with no clear ending or goal in sight.
