    This game is awesome. I remember playing it when i was a kid back in the 1999 and oh gosh, this was great. I did not get the story at first, but playing it almost 18 years later made me feel like a kid again.

    About the game itself, back in the day these graphics was really awesome. The story is unique and immersive, and the soundtrack is another high point on the game.

    At first i didn't knew the book, and reading it after the game gives you another perspective on the story and how everything has been well made.

    After getting this game i found out a little about Harlan Ellison and his novelette (didn't read it though).
    Well, the game is a classical Adventure point-and-click with an annoying element of choosing each command specifically ('OPEN' or 'SWALLOW' or "WALK", etc.).
    The overall story is ok, a bit simplistic - just like most sci-fi monster movies from the 50's. What makes this game playable is the 5 characters and their stories, which are rather cliche but well developed.
    As others have pointed out - the puzzles are not always logical, but the game leverages this with a good atmospheric artwork.

    I'd only recommend this to Adventure-experienced players and definitely not as an entry into the genre for anyone not familiar with this gaming style.

    I didn't know anything about the book when I started to play the game, but the concept intrigued me straight away. You get to pick one of the 5 human survivors to play a sadistic game by a god-like AI where your task is to redeem the character. Then you get to pick the next one, and so on.

    I was really impressed by the story and setting. If I had to rate the game on story alone, it'd be a 10/10. Each of the 5 human survivors is developed well, and you get to explore their fears, likes and dislikes during their challenge, and AI itself is really likeable and somewhat charismatic, despite being a horrible, sadistic thing that has been torturing these people for years.

    The music and the visuals are also very impressive and greatly add to the atmosphere.

    The only aspect of the game I really didn't enjoy were the puzzles. Most times they didn't make much logical sense and involved a lot of trial and error. Worse yet, if you make a mistake, that character fails the campaign and gets taken back to the starting area, so you'll have to redo their campaign again if you haven't been saving regularly. Because of this, I'd highly recommend you to have a walkthrough at hand when playing, or better yet, just watch one of the Let's Plays on Youtube, because the story is well worth experiencing.
