Blackbar is a text game: a sci-fi story of a dystopian future told through the medium of word puzzles. Reminiscent of text adventures and interactive fiction, it has a unique mechanic centered around the concept of censorship. Censorship is frustrating, but the human spirit can beat that frustration by turning it into a game.
You'll pick up Blackbar instantly; however, its challenges will keep you searching, thinking, and trying for days.

Interesting, but too short.
Enjoyed this game quite a bit actually. Text based and mentally challenging. But it only took me about an hour or two and it abruptly ended.
The game is clever but it only took about an hour. It's not as challenging as I expected.
