All you need to play this game is a mouse or any similar rodent (though a capybara may be too large to use efficiently). Items are used automatically, if you have them, and you can click on the scroll to see what you currently need to accomplish.

The controls are really very simple, but remember: it's the journey that counts, not the destination. Take your time. Explore. Examine the details. Enjoy your time in the Mountains of Oddness.

Loving it so far. Do you DM? ;)

It is a beautiful story... I truly cried because of it... The joy of learning, of reading... It can turn even the most boring day into an adventure...

Jampacked with whimsy, with very basic gameplay. Nothing too hard, except the alleyway to the circus is missable if you're not paying attention. The text is funny but often very subtle - I particularly like how the circus cat says that humans are "ironically" called homo sapiens. Sending the depressed robot on the trip of a lifetime is rather touching, but sadly the ending lacks any emotional impact. Finding the Book is an anticlimax, because the real joy of this game is the exploration!

Wonderful game! BoLM showed me that you CAN use hand-drawn graphics in a game, and it made me realize I want my own adventure game to leave a feel-good impression on people.

Had I not played this, my game would have turned out VERY differently. So, thank you BoLM.

This was a very touching story to me. The puzzles were great and so was the music 4 stars!
