First, I thought the game was broken. I couldnt move my character manually and I didn't realize I had a text bar at the top. I typed in "Look at floor" "look at ground" "look at man" "look at bouncer" and I got nothing. The only way I made progress in this game was to look at the comments. I still have no idea how anyone figured out that the pink stuff on the ground was 'gum' nor how anyone knew the character names. I couldn't get any information from this game as it would accept none of my commands. I read through the tutorial carefully thinking I was doing something wrong.
No, this game is simply stiff and unresponsive.
I stopped trying after 5 minutes because I felt as though I couldnt go any further without looking at the comments for a clue. (note, I grew up on text-adventure games. Typing commands isnt exactly new to me.)
