I really enjoyed this game's sense of humor.

Quality writing, and the sheer number of permutations is really impressive. I haven't even scratched the surface, really. I do find the ending(s) a bit abrupt, but there's a lot else to love.

I have controversial feelings about this game. There are brilliant dialogs, really funny situations and very impressive replayability. But the main plot... with this weirdly trivial child sacrifice... Well, I don't know. If it is dark comedy, then OK, I would understand. But it's not dark enough.

Nevertheless I will definitely remember Animalia and think about it more. It was a unique experience for me.

As far as I understood, this is a Calvin and Hobbes-like scenario, mostly happening in the imagination of a child who's been reading about taiga biomes for his school presentation.

Wow, thanks! It changes a lot. I didn't notice any hints about it inside the game after two replays. Maybe It is because I'm not a native English speaker.

I'm from Russia, too - and not a huge authority on understanding English literary works.

I'll never forget playing Chandler Groover's Down, the Serpent and the Sun while constantly consulting a dictionary for words like incendiary, ileocecal, putrefaction, grotesquerie, diluvian, morass, etc.

The parser game in this is amazing. The glow around the green text? Superb.

This was a blast to play. I've posted a review of it on my blog.
