How It Begins

Notable Features

  • Wordplay. The main gimmick is that the player has the ability to KNOCK a letter out of a word. The knocked letter, which is held in a runebag, may then be CAST back into that word or possibly another word.
  • An "internal monologue pane" at the bottom of the screen, below the prompt, lets the player see what the player character is thinking as events occur.
  • Several standard commands have been disabled, possibly to minimize the amount of text that can potentially be altered by the wordplay commands.
