This game is designed with character interaction at its foundation. There is a lot of classical interactive fiction play but to solve to story you need to interact with characters. There are a few interesting enemies in the game. A wandering dead, a dead nurse, and the great Dr. Marcus. Quick witted combat puzzles and interesting rooms with different locked doors adds a unique flavor to interactive fiction.
