The only reason I gave this a 4 and not a 5 is that it was a little short for my liking, but what you do get is a well-rounded text based survival horror romp that'll have your brains smoking. I thoroughly enjoyed my time in this game, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone who likes a good text adventure.

Another fun, high-quality game! There are quite a few ways to die in this one, so I was actually put at the edge of my seat and took care to save often. Definitely a recommendation for text-game enthusiasts!

Excellent atmosphere and writing, clear and vivid descriptions, gripping storyline, challenging but solvable puzzles (with hints... heh heh heh). Overall a very well done game!

Very spooky -- but Good Triumphs In The End. Thank you for another brain-stretching set of puzzles, Peter. Alas, I've now played all your excellent games: can we hope for any more?

An amazing game. I specifically liked the subtle, yet quite overt hints. Although, I have to admit, I am not accustomed to sounds in a MUD, so I jumped a little at that vampire-appearing scene :D

Anyway, great game, and thanks for the tip.

Thanks Peter, I had thought that I might need to tempt a rat out of the portcullis to provide a more substantial snack than the spider which I'd been carrying around since the beginning, but just hadn't tried the most obvious way to attract a rat! Anyway, I eventually figured that out and have now finished the game.

Congratulations on a fantastic game, great setting, atmospheric and evocative descriptions and some really lovely, challenging but soluble puzzles make this a great game that I would very highly recommend to anyone looking for entertaining and challenging text adventures. The commands and gameplay were very intuitive which I greatly appreciate. I very much look forward to your future games!
