This is a unique game in that it is a collaboration of six different authors on Compuserve (a defunct online service) who never met each other in real life (well, maybe now they have). Amazingly, all the episodes in the story come together seamlessly despite that. The cliche story at the beginning of the game (you have amnesia) quickly turns into a fascinating page-turner about the consequences of one's actions. Highly recommended.
