I don't have much good to say about this game. The interface isn't really that good (interacting with objects requires clicking and holding the mouse button down and accessing your inventory is also annoying to me). There's no audio voices so the game lacks personality. The plot so far has been very linear, which makes the game not much of an adventure. Worst of all, there are display problems where huge black rectangles flicker in places where things move. I tried playing after turning off compositing but the problem was still there. Maybe the actual problem is with Adobe AIR but I can't stand to play the game with it flickering.
