Discussion thread for The Unofficial Sea-Monkey(R) Simulation!

Sometime during 1987, your father comes home from work--late, as usual. He tosses a small box onto the kitchen counter. "Here," he says, "you wanted fish. You get these. Let's see how you do first, and then maybe we'll get a real tank."


My review is here, and I'm hoping to review at least 10 IF Comp games this year.

Really thoroughly enjoyed it -- for me, it was exactly the right amount of upsetting. I don't feel the need to say much... The game speaks for itself, I think. It establishes its tone and matter very quickly; within the space of one or two scenes, a reader will know whether or not they like its style.

Spoiler: show
The most unique feature for me was the text after each ending, coloured in grey. I only played through two of the eight endings, but I loved the strange, unpleasantly tense atmosphere of the epilogue text on both of them. Definitely drove me to play the game again.
