This improved post-comp version is sufficiently polished, so you can concentrate on the puzzles without wondering if you have triggered a bug, which could leave the game unsolvable. Also, more interesting responses have been added.

Story: You are on a quest to save Princess Illumina and the game starts when you have reached the dungeon in a castle, where the princess is kept in a cell.

This short fantasy adventure has only a few puzzles but they are quite good. They are fair even though one is quite tricky. But if you carefully pay attention to ALL details, you will most likely succeed. I didn't, so I needed a few hints from the author.

This is traditional fantasy IF, which I like. Though short, the few puzzles range from good to excellent so I recommend this game a lot. It may be, that you need help with the final puzzle, but I am sure you will say "of course" after getting the right hint, just as it should be.

To sum up, if you don't mind short games, this one is quite entertaining and challenging.

My biggest question honestly is why my character decided to go on this mission with nothing but the clothes on his back and a pair of (stolen?) boots.

It felt like a nice classic adventure although I unfortunately didn't get very far at all in the time I had to play. I had the acidic liquid in the pot I thought I was going to melt some metal part of the door with, but if that was the case I never could figure out the right command. I saw signs of another puzzle in the dark guard room upstairs but never had anything relevant for that in my possession. Although as I said I didn't get to experience much of this game, it left me interested enough to want to come back to it later and beat it properly.
