Background Story -------------------------------------------------
It’s 1972. Love is free. Flipflops, English leather and bandanas are the height of fashion. Meanwhile the Cold War is more than lukewarm and a real one is going on overseas. Movements are happening. Environmentalists, the female liberties movement, and on the dance floors an entirely different kind of movement is overtaking the underground clubs. The winds of change are certainly blowing over the country.
Somewhere in the big city, in a tall, faceless government building someone left a window open. All the winds of change are doing here is blowing leaves all over Joe’s newly-swept floor. He’s been there for two years now. Working a dead-end attendant job making sure the building is as spotless as the suits walking the halls. It’s been like this for years, going from one soul-devouring job to the next.
Our protagonist is Joe in more than just name. He is quite literally Joe Average. Average height, average weight, average IQ. In fact, the only thing remotely remarkable about him is exactly how much he conforms to the median of the hypothetical everyman, and up until this point, Joe’s life hasn't exactly been biography material.
This is all about to change...

Sound issue on some devices has been fixed.
Excellent Adventure, Hope for More of this Caliber :)
I gave the game 5 stars, because it is truly amazing and quite immersive. The downside is for gameplay time taking on a minimalist standpoint IF you are a hardcore adventurist who plays for hours on end at one sitting. Simply put, it's just too quick from beginning to end if you are one of those types (aka ME). No cheats, and we flew through both episodes in a single sitdown of hours and hours and hours. This game has high potential to be a classic (remember Sierra's Spacequest series?), but again it's just a bit fast paced leaving us wanting more and more, but that makes it excellent. Thumbs up for a brilliant concept and interface, but hard end for want of more due to the ending in gameplay. I hope the developers deliver a much more robust game of this caliber. I'd easily shell out $50 buckazoids for a more robust version. Cheers!
Sound/Dialogue bugs fixed!!
So happy I was able to play the game after today's update. A pretty standard point and click with an interesting story to go with it. I would highly recommend this to fans of sci fi and point and click games. Just finished the first episode, nothing was too difficult to find as to impede progress but I did spend some time searching for a couple items. Can't wait to start the second episode!
Interesting & frustrating (at times)
If you lack patience (as I do) trying to find some of the objects, as well as finding out what to use them with can be very frustrating! But then that does make the game challenging and keeps it from being far too simple/easy to complete. Otherwise, the story is interesting (as are the graphics – interestingly enough) and it has a lot of interesting twists and turns to the story.
