This is marvelous. I always loved games with a unique flavor like that. Yes, I've seen this page before, though, I have to admit I didn't really read the original contents. Maybe it's a good thing after all ;)

It makes for a moody effect which works even to this day – a style which has aged quite well.


I'd prefer the word melancholic :)

you are now clearly expecting a beating along the lines "style over substance sucks"


That's actually what I thought when I watched a few minutes of the gameplay a couple of years back, though I still appreciated the attempt at least :)

Even the graphics take their toll, when for example it becomes hard to tell what is irrelevant scenery and what are relevant objects.


Ah, that's actually one of my favorite things, love being confused a bit ;)

Wait... is it the game or the mainstream public which sucks? ;)

Cheer up! Remember the less you have, the more there is to get.

The original review can still be found in the archive article if you like to have a look.

The mainstream public is as it is. The game is as it is. I'm just making a neutral statement about the compatibility of both ;)
