I only seemed to be able to enter maybe 3 or 4 different rooms and always was returned to either the beginning or the blackboard. There didn't seem to be any instructions and I remained confused, after trying, I think, every button on my keyboard and nothing seemed to do anything. I was not at all impressed and finally just uninstalled it.
The museum had some interesting exhibits eg text, items etc, as well as some sub-stories. These were strange at first, but the stories and the text exhibits were interesting and thought-provoking (even the hand drawn one). I enjoyed the shadow/town one the most.
Like I said, the game was confusing at first, but when i realised what was going on, I found it very interesting.
The save and load feature was a bit complicated, but I found I didn't need to use it much.
Some of the images in the actual museum, as well as the whole 'sinking house' sub-plot, are just beautiful works of art. As for the story... all of it seems to be interconnected somehow, it is hard to grasp, but clearly tangible. Several of the stories convey a profound sense of sorrow and loss and are deeply moving. I'm happy to have played this game.
Great idea to have a sub-story based on the game designers notes.
The save and load mechanism takes some getting used to.
I liked everything. The 'story' was powerful and impressed me greatly. (although reminescent to his previous IF 'The Great Machine')
The music too was very good, the particular track 'Fever' gave me the chills.
The only thing I didn't quite like that much was the drawing/note scene, althought even that had it charm.
As said before, this isn't a game as much as it's an experience. It's not about winning or solving difficult puzzles...
It is designed well, I think. The music is amazing, it gives you this creepy sense, but then again, so does the art work, and the story for that matter.
It is extremly simple, not really a game as an experience. That's not really a bad thing, but it you are looking for a point and click adventure game, this is not it.
The only thing i enjoyed was the music background. I was so confused and i didnt know what to do? I got stuck on that black board thing.
Need to be a little easier and tell what keys that we can use to do something like fight or turn and stuff.
