Nope, but CaptainD is on the right track.

Given the play-style of Dragon's Lair, I think it's that I've seen that backdrop too many times.

Naughty Chrille! It's the Hero-U alpha/beta. Mandle can have it, as he basically guessed it without naming it.

The best thing about this game is that a rainbow skunk chooses to wear a drab, brown dress.

Full review:

For such a gay and vibrant little adventure, the story has a surprisingly dark tone. Assuming that rat is
one of the many animal-based humanoids that inhabit her world, Rainbow Skunk seems like an unapologetic
pyschopath. She won't talk to the intruder unless it's to offer him cyanide, while maintaining a cheerful
demeanour because she's so emotionally detached.

There were a couple of standout things about this game. The death animation was well drawn and helped
maintain that comical cheerfulness present throughout. The music was also well chosen. Each track coupled
well with its background.

It's very easy to complete. I think this works in your favour when writing a MAGS game because everybody gets
to see the whole game. It would have been nice, however, to have a little more "meat" to the main puzzle, like
perhaps letting Rainbow Skunk read a book about almonds and choose the rounder (bitter) almonds on a close-up
screen.

Overall, an interesting story, a well-built world and a great puzzle idea. A great, short play.

You never know sometimes just how bad it is for some people. :( He certainly didn't let on.

CaptainD, can I ask where this was on Twitter? Do you have a link to a tweet or anything?

Very odd to read a Game of Thrones discussion where BT doesn't mean BitTorrent.

The old icon was better.
Or maybe we should go with Khris' icon reworked and at different sizes.
Right now, I'd just prefer the old icon outright.
This is the Critics' Lounge, so I'm allowed to say this.

Looks really good, regularryan! Nice silhouettes in the distance.

This was a nice competition. I enjoyed reading the entries, voting and the air of mystery surrounding the entrants. Let's have another!

The clickable areas on the new-fangled object/character/everything selector bother me. They're too small to navigate quickly.
I get that it's based on the Windows Explorer address bar, but that is arguably a secondary navigation bar (and I've never found it the mouse navigation intuitive).
Could we have the name and the arrow be one clickable area that shows a menu? The name currently makes it possible to navigate back up the hierarchy, but I don't think that's needed. i.e. There's no specific view associated with having "Room" selected on its own.
I don't know, what do other people think?
