You have to get things ready for a party in your newly-landscaped garden, as requested by your partner Pru - otherwise known as SWMBO (She Who Must Be Obeyed).

This small, one-location game was created to enter into P.O Prune's Mini Competition on the ADRIFT Forum, in which it attained 2nd place.

  A short entertaining game, Thu 20th May 2021
By P/o Prune - See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this game. It differs from most other games as you don't have to kill a dragon, slay a troll or free a Princess and win the Kingdom. It is so down to earth that it takes place in an ordinary back yard.
As a foreigner (Danish) I had a little problem with some of the commands used, but apart from that it's a well written game and absolutely worth giving a go.

  A pretty good 1-room puzzler, Thu 20th May 2021
By Denk - See all my reviews

This is a short but fun one-room game where you play the role of Clive Custard, partner of Prudence Lavender.

Prudence gives you three tasks (at least to begin with), which should be carried out in your garden. These are:

Getting the firepit lit
Get the waterfall running
Hang the chimes in an appropriate place

The gameplay mainly consists of finding the items you need by examining, looking behind, and looking under (search not needed).

Once you have the items for a certain task, the commands for carrying out the tasks are usually straightforward, as this game has been polished to Lazzah's usual standard with many synonyms and no apparent bugs.

So there are no ingenious puzzles, but still, I found it to be fun to explore the garden, reading the atmospheric descriptions, and looking for the missing objects.
