This odd feeling
About this gameGary and his girlfriend are on a camping trip

They set up their tent and Gary looks for help the next day.

Mystery, conflic and deceit.
An old school game with a lot of humor,
mystery and adventure.

AGS Panel Review
"Some good ideas and nice, if technically rough, graphics, help this tale of a camping holiday gone a bit odd. A lack of music and spot sound effects don't. Nor does a seeming endless text-based introduction, and very uneven writing and grammar. The addition of tarot card interactions during conversations is clever, though not wholly successful. Has enough at it's core to be a good game, but needs more development time."
7 people commented on this game (newest first):
They also remove the concept of "liberty of actions". This "game" is more a story, the actions must be done in a precise order. For example very beginning of the game: you notice a fruit guy, you just speak to him. Dead-end, you must first speak with another seller. That cancels the immersion.
The game has good immersion, but at points it becomes a chore: there is substantial backtracking involved, and the solutions to the puzzles aren't often clear, or need to be carried in very precise ways. Moreover, even though the author mocks pixel hunting a couple times through the game, he's guilty of it at least twice himself (i.e. bucket and barb wire).
Lots of minor spelling mistakes don't deter the determined player, but might annoy some.
I feel that this could have been a memorable game, had the author taken more time to polish it. Maybe there will be a redux version some day, or we'll be treated to a completely new game; in either case, I'm looking forward to it!
Although there were some minor logic flaws in the story & puzzles (for my taste), the game is very enjoyable and recommended...
