I was actually genuinely surprised by how fun and cool this game is. I was never one for text based adventures but this has changed my perception of it. I really like the subversion of expectation and the combat while basic really fun. Everything flows well and was quite manageable to beat. However, I did have difficulty finding out what i should type in and what keywords to use but only for a short while. Really liked it and hope you make more like this.

thank you, allekid! i'm glad you liked my game. it definitely means a lot to me.
and yeah, trying to find a good way to handle user input (the prompts) was definitely a challenge. turns out natural language processing is hard! i would be more than happy to make something related to this text adventure, be-it another text adventure (or point-and-click) with the same vibe, or a differently-genred game related to the "story" of Puteus.
SO GOOD GAME
