Well, there's not much here in terms of difficulty to say the least.

There's a interesting context here, but this story really lacks in complexity that it would've certainly benefited from. I wouldn't of minded actually having to think things through more to reach a conclusion, because I found the actual answer to be a bit too obvious at the end.

More details and writing in general would also have benefited this story. With a game like this I feel that its important to at least flesh out things and give the story some more depth and meaning to the situation.

There's really not much here in the end of the day, and I must say that's a bit of a let down.

Still, there's potential in this, that I believe. Just don't be afraid to get descriptive and imaginative with your writing, and don't make things so simple. Complexity in a game like this is a good thing, as it makes it more exciting if there's actual challenge involved in succeeding.

This was okay, but I can't say that this was too memorable.

This storygame was way too easy for it to be enjoyable. I knew who the culprit was after gaining two items. This style of puzzle, while it was a pretty good idea, might have worked better if it was a bit more complex.

I also didn't like how the game didn't explain why the 'evidence' that you find should be proof of somebody being the kidnapper. You found footprints from footwear that matches certain suspects, but so what? It could easily have been somebody who didn't kidnap Mr Allistair.

You could have done with fleshing out setting, mood and characters more, and just adding more detail in general. It would have made this a nicer read.

And for crying out loud, please spell colonel right.

A weak effort that was bashed out in about 40 minutes. Could have been decent if you'd actually put time and effort in. Also the clues were in no way proof of the kidnapper and I hope you never become a detective

This game is definitely not a 5/8 for difficulty. It’s an interesting idea, I’ll grant you that, but it didn’t allow for enough thought to make it an engaging mystery. My biggest complaint is that all the evidence was handed right to me- I would have enjoyed going around and finding who wears boots for myself, for example. We never even got to talk to some of the suspects. There should be opportunities to talk to everyone at least once. That would help add some length too! I think that with another round or two of edits, this could be really great, but right now there’s still quite a bit to be desired.

you should have added a variable to change who it is so 5/8

Would have liked to use items for more intense investigation.
