Could you please answer me if you do plan to release a Lite Version of the Game too?

Note:

Saw that it is a Universial Build = Getting it.

Honestly not trying to be mean, but a "narrative-driven" game should really have a strong narrative. A good beginning would be fixing the grammar. Either that or you could always lower your aspirations and change the description. That might work too, since from the video above I've very little idea of what this game is about. The "narrative" sure as heck isn't a strong point though.

It's a puzzle game - with bits of the story rewarded after completing each puzzle.

I actually think it could be good, but the length worries me. I can't imagine packing a good story into a short game, but making a puzzle game long will draw it out to the tedious.

Would be interesting to see how well it does though, as a writer.

I currently have no plans to do so.

The grammar is deliberately archaic. It's a stylistic choice, and if that doesn't work for you then that's fine.

That's a fair enough worry. I'd like to think I've struck the balance about right, but ultimately everyone will have to decide that for themselves (feedback I've seen so far has been positive on that, fortunately).

This looks interesting.. I want to know what happens to the couple and the Robot! Someone please post impressions on length, creativity and the depth of the tale as well as general rules and frustration level. The narrative doesn't seem to be an issue to me so please don't write a four paragraph long sentiment regarding grammar, thanks!

Is it worth the price for the content (I know it's a couple bucks, but still)? It seems like something my girl might have fun with so hopefully the puzzles aren't too frustrating. Thanks!

Very, VERY early impressions, but so far they're overwhelmingly positive! Just wanted to post that.

Nearly 2am here, so will post some more detailed impressions tomorrow. Peace out..

You have got to be joking. I know I should just leave this alone but it is scary that some people might actually buy that. Unbelievable.
