Some games are buggy as a swamp. Some games are buggy as a corpse. Then there’s An Interlude in Nuln, which is as buggy as a Robb Sherwin game.

I could not finish this game, as there was no walkthrough. Nor did I have a desire to, as after about 100 moves I was completely lost. At some point, I switched rooms without ever being told. Some descriptions obviously were displayed at the wrong times. By the end, I was stuck on a bed with no way to get off of it. To top it off, I ran into runtime errors and had many blank responses to commands.

Since the game has no obvious plot, goal, or direction, I could not even figure what I was supposed to do next. The game is almost entirely directed by conversation, so I felt if my character had nothing to say, I had little to nothing to do of any relevancy. And when most of my commands created as many problems as listed above, that was enough for me.

Although, Softiron does think that the sex scenes Softiron was able to view were done quite nicely.

Out of nine fierce competitors, An Interlude in Nuln placed 8th on my ballot.
