When one is leaving for a long hike or climb into dangerous territory, one is strongly advised to alert others in case one gets lost or injured.
After a year of mostly comping/hiking, I’ve decided to climb the mountains again. I will probably make time for FrenchComp and SpringThing, but I really want to devote a lot of IF-time to my folder of “Big, Long Games”.
I’m staring at the dais in the Foyer in The Mulldoon Legacy. I realised I’d better let some of you know. If I’m engulfed and absorbed and consumed by this monster, all my earthly possessions and a blessing of Annoia go to the one who can get those dang scissors out of the left hand drawer first.
No, I’m thinking of a different one. Does ML begin outside a museum with a key in a big vase? Because that’s the one I’m thinking of. I did mean to go back to that one, so the rage couldn’t have been too terrible, but then I never did. Maybe you should do a Let’s Play of it and then I don’t ever have to.
I did finally finish this back in 2015 after several months. The puzzle with the mechanical monkey and the games room door remains one of my favourites and certainly one of the most difficult in the entire text adventure canon.
Its cap doffing to Curses is well reported and although the back story is less substantial the user friendliness is more evident; soft locks are absent and hard locks have to be strenuously contrived by the player.
I started replaying it by coincidence recently while juggling Windmere Estate and I am having real trouble remembering things. The broom’s raison d’etre was a real re-Eureka moment.
