- It's hard to top the depth of Emily Short's review and the discussion that takes place there about the game thematically (though that will spoil)
- I already know I like the author and her previous works so I was kind of primed to like this one
- You have no excuse not to play it yourself. It's short, simple, doesn't involve downloading a parser and doesn't involve learning any new vocabulary or typing. Just point and click!
I myself played it three times in a short span, and got three different endings. When I got the ending that satisfied me the most (with just a hint of romance) is when I stopped. But I know there have got to be several more beyond that.
So, in short, a one-room game with multiple endings, a distinct protagonist, and fun NPCs. This is a game I'll probably direct Interactive Fiction beginners to in the future and a fun way to start off the comp!
