I knew this would be fantastic, but wow - it was even more stunning than I though it would be. Mr. Skutnik, I have been playing your games for almost 20 years. They're all fabulous. This one, to me, is a masterpiece. Artistically, the imagery is strange, sad, and enchanting. As for the puzzles, they are clever but never infuriating. IMHO, all point-and-click/escape/puzzle games should be evaluated in the light of your masterpieces.
I'm fairly sure I have now played all of your works other than Submachine 10: The Exit. TBH, I almost don't want to play it because I don't want it to end. Here's wishing you a very warm, happy, and productive New Year, one which will see you creating another game or two that we can have the pleasure of purchasing.
Bravo, esteemed artist.
