A wrong item combination can restart the game. There are no saves. It's very frustrating and I can't finish the game if I have to restart and do everything again if I make a mistake.

Stop burning the room down then :P In seriousness, thanks for the feedback. It was a last minute decision based on feedback that there was no fail conditions.

I like the typography used. I'm not a fan of this kind of games, when the game restart is like, really? Maybe if I cannot click again on an option already used the game feels much faster.

I'm old enough to remember playing text adventures, and I like this one. Using buttons helps move the player along. Nice job.

I enjoyed the game. however, when I escaped the room, I would have liked the game to end. however it just started over.

Dear god, why would you do that? gaaah. no more.
Also what do you know about my behind.. and my soul?

Really cool (for a text adventure :) )

Absolutely loved this. Great and fun and funny and I had to laugh quite a bit at the ending. Britlliantly done. :)

Really nice mood and writing style. I kept wanting to see what was next.

Very good! Not too much of a fan of text-based stuff, but kept me engaged long enough to open the door. Won't spoil what happens then, but I assure you it's very Sisyphus-like

Very nice! The puzzles were logical and the game felt mostly very coherent and neat. I got 2 endings!

"You butt looks as good as ever." Haha :)

But in all seriousness, I think this game was a little too hard. There didn't seem to be much indication as to which item I should use one what, and one mistake meant a restart. I think the restarting is fair, but maybe only from a certain checkpoint? Then again, I wanted checkpoints in my game too, but 48 hours pass quickly... ;)

Humorous enough for a text adventure. A bit of a cliché to do the whole loop thing but hey. Thank the good green earth that I didn't have to type hundreds of commands, esp. after I burned the place down and had to start over. Only once though. I'm a quick study.
