Player Comments

This game is a great example of a puzzle on CYS. The multiple endings work brilliantly, for replayability and allowing the player to solve the mystery to varying degrees. I always love to go through storygames to find different endings.

The game requires you to solve a challenging puzzle, but isn't stupidly difficult and allows you to finish early and not solve the whole mystery. This makes it enjoyable for both people who want a quick game and those who want to spend a while looking for clues. The use of different characters to perform different tasks is nicely done, and it works better than its predecessor.

One of my biggest issues with this game is the amount of clicking you are forced to do. I feel that some pages are unnecessary, such as being asked if you're sure you want to go outside when you've gotten rid of the creature or heading inside. There's also the problem of many links being similarly titled and consequent accidental clicks on links I don't want to go to. While these problems aren't game breaking, I do feel that in this particular game it does negatively affect the player's experience. When you're replaying this game and going over the same pages again and again searching for clues, you want the game to be as streamlined and quick paced as possible.

I did find a bug where the link that gets you to the epilogue doesn't appear. First, do the bare minimum or, in other words, meet the conditions for Ending E (i.e. you fix the generator without rescuing Ashley and don't solve the letter and book puzzle). Then scan the letter with the computer. Send a rescue e-mail without looking up windigo in the book. That should lead you to a page that says you've reached the ending but there's no link for the epilogue.

I think this storygame is really good, but could be improved with a more streamlined way to navigate pages.

This is a GREAT game. One of the best on CYS. Well proofread, original, hard to die but not easy to win, well organized, required problem solving, good use of items, had humor, great sequel to Creature 1- good continuity but adding new wrinkles and improving on weaknesses from the previous story.

Well done.

I recommend this for Featured game.

I liked that you could change between characters for this one. But still left me feeling a little unsatisfied.
