Ok, I just started and finished playing this one.
Wow. And I mean Wow. And. I. Mean. WOW!
You, sir, are one heck of a storyteller. When I stick to a game all in one sitting, never looking at any hints whatsoever, always striving to do my best and get the best ending despite "it being just a game" (poppycock! Such a fleshed out world, such characters!), and even go through such a puzzle as the measuring device - and actually solving it formyself! - and, after all that hard work, end up feeling like I'm feeling just now... you, sir, are a credit to the game-making world. Your foray into the "serious game" was a complete sucess. The scripting was superb, the interface flawless, the music astoundingly fitting. And with ProgZMax's writing skills to the rescue... well, gentlemen. What a gem we have here.
My hat is off to you! Off, I say!
