This entry blew me away. The writing is SPOT ON for everyone, and the addition of the dersites and prospitians (ESPECIALLY MS. PAINT, I JUST) was really what won me over. All of the art and design is fantastic, perfectly placed, and works so well with the style of the whole entry. Great pacing, great dialogue, and a totally great idea that could not have ended any better.

You guys stepped up to the plate and knocked this slam dunk right through the center of the goal posts. Absolutely magnificent job.

Wow. The mountains could crumble and the oceans could evaporate and I would still just be sittin' here, lovin' this game. All the hilarious details and the examinable objects and the dialogue that changes every day, and being able to wander around freely, and those dream sequences...This is incredibly well done. It's so much fun.
