THAT WAS REALLY FUN. your best game in my opinion. wayyy more logical clues than usual. never felt like I was that far off at any point. although the cocktail bit at the end got me stuck for a bit. otherwise great storyline, interesting world and just very entertaining the whole way through.
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.
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.
