  1. Aw now what the sam hill is a gblorb file

  2. worth saying that playing a text game that uses a parser interpreter is very easy and painless, just install the interpreter and run the file

  3. I seem to be collecting a rather gruesome inventory, but the nature of the game is such that I can’t tell whether it’s my fault or if the game intended it.

  4. Seems a little unfair for this to come out on December 31st, after everybody has written their top 10 lists.

    What a brilliant, brilliant game. I love how there are multiple solutions to almost every puzzle. Pretty much anything you want to do is possible, as long as it’s within the rules of the universe: at the very end, I skipped the intended mode of transportation and k-removed a rock, then soared to safety on the back of a giant bird.
