Thanks so much to everyone who's played so far! I'm up to about 2,500 downloads, which is crazy-awesome.
The coin and the slot
Ugh, yeah, that 'red herring' didn't work at all well, as it was pointless. Hands-up: I screwed up some of the puzzle design, and as it was a short-term project didn't have time to revise it properly. This was a shortcut. No excuse, but a reason.
If you're asking "Wait, is that it? Did I read it correctly?" then I've done my job properly. Masked has a definite story, and I could happily give you the full run-down of events if I wanted to, but I don't: I wrote it very specifically so that people could pick at the implications and work out what happened.
The switch between carefully crafted prose and insane-o-ranting was very intentional, but this isn't the first time someone's criticised the writing. That's fine, but it's also probably the one thing I wouldn't change at all. The awkward imbalance I seem to have hit upon is exactly what I was aiming for. That it's stylistically inconsistent was totally the point.
Cheers again, folks!
