As Darkness Falls by CJ592

You play a private detective investigating the disappearance of your friend. His last known location was a small run down motel in the middle of nowhere.

Pretty decent game. I enjoyed the fairly simple puzzles. Could really be improved with a basic spell check - a lot of spelling errors which just made the game OK for me.

So, just finished it. If there had been a little less "guess the verbs", though that wasn't the case too often in this game, it would have been a five. Enjoyed it a lot, but not without a little help from the comments.

This game was actually really fun, even though some parts were confusing. But what's a game without a challenge?

I played this one a few days ago and the puzzles weren't too hard, and enjoyable enough to play without too much frustration. I did get help from the hints here so that probably helped. Really awesome job.

Short but sweet, and probably the most use you'll get from a can of gas in any text adventure! The puzzles are fairly intuitive, and you're not handcuffed overmuch by "guess the verb" -- though 'lift' might have been a problem if not already mentioned in previous messages here. I confirmed my own "Examine vs. Look At" bias by getting stuck for an embarrassing time on the dog's name. The steps required to start the fire only to then immediately want to put it out... genius.

As with any Quest game I complete, I put together a walkthrough:

I'm a little ambivalent about putting these up, since there's the chance a readily available walkthrough will end people asking questions here and erode the sense of community... and yet I'm also thinking of the person who's frustrated at 2 AM (or a day/week/month later) and about ready to give up on the game entirely for want of anyone to get a quick answer from. As your situation dictates, I guess.

Finished!!!! Didn't think much to the ending - a bit rushed I thought - but still really fun to play. Great game!
