Summary

Become the protagonist of a Lovecraft-like tale

The Good

It's a very highly atmospheric game; the writing is excellent and the puzzles are smart; the parser -as in every Infocom game- is great!

The Bad

I didn't like very much that you may be forced to restart the game if you've spent too much turns.

The Bottom Line

The only Infocom's horror title is a great incursion in the genre.
