  1. It’s pretty fun! I’m trying not to play too much while at work (hmmm…) but I’ve currently worked my way up from being penniless and just out of prison to being the captain of a pirate ship with a “haul of booty” (which, according to the save-game url, is 1005 gold coins, I guess).

  2. My experience has been much different. I suppose being a talking cat has something to do with that.

  3. “You pass over the River Phoenix, through the Forest Gump, and past several posters advertising a reward for the capture of a rogue mapmaker.”
    This could be fun.

    1.  It’s fun but I’ve come nowhere near to a happy ending yet. Some areas seem to be determined death traps.

  4. Thanks for this review of my game. I’m not currently adding to it,
    but I’m working on another online game, as well as a collection of
    fiction which is coming out in November. Some people might be interested
    in following my blog:
