Fairly typical first-time author's one-room, ontological mystery wannabe, escape game with no contextualizing story or conflict beyond an arbitrary, red herring switch puzzle, an object that can be read even when its normal description says it is "too dark," and a lame "twist" ending.

Originally submitted to the community for feedback, but since the author hasn't returned despite fairly glowing initial reviews and encouragement, I think we can safely assume this one has been flushed down a n00b WIP black hole.

A curious experiment that takes advantage of the game engine’s ability to make traveling feel like you are on a treadmill. I would like to see this idea expanded.

In "Where am I" you find yourself in a 9 x 9 ft. room with no obvious exits, and very little infor about what to do (which is actually intriguing). This being Rich’s first Adrift game I find it well written, and quite "irritating" at times.. But it is absolutely worth playing. Personally I will be looking forward to see what he cooks up next.
