As an adult, it is really hard to re-immerse oneself into a child's mind and write such a character in a work of fiction. On the other hand, having a child write a child character isn't exactly a super realistic option, either. That is why it is so common to find so many insufferable kids who are really not kids, but "small adults" or "kids through the eyes of adults" in the movies, on TV etc.
The Impossible Bottle therefore takes a bit of a risk on its premise. Although seemingly safe, placing itself into the light-hearted comedy with fantasy elements genre, it is told through the eyes of a six-year-old girl. The Taylors' visit is imminent. Mom is busy working in her study. Dad is cooking dinner… but he's admittedly also late on setting up the table etc. So he recruits his daughter to help. Beginning with the simple request of removing her toys from the ground, subsequently, more and more tasks pile up.
In May 2021, the winner of a small competition for self-created text adventures was voted. The PunyJam participants had the task of starting the game in a room called Broom Closet. The description of the room was also precisely specified. The rest of the game was left to the imagination and creativity of the author. This resulted in 8 different text adventures which were evaluated by a jury. The decision was very close. The difference between first place and second place was only a tenth of a point.
One of the most exciting things about unravelling a mystery is piecing your clues together and trying to make sense of it all. Just think of the fun you can have while coming up with your own interpretation of what is going on or your very own version of the truth. You do not have to be right, on the contrary coming up with a theory which turns out to be wrong can be even more entertaining because it only makes the mystery deeper. And the deeper it gets the more curious and therefore involved you get.
