I can see why this game receives so many thumbs down.
It's a nice game with nice puzzles, and this comes from an old school palyer (zack, day of the tentacle, full throttle, discworld, the dig, monkey island, grim fandango and so on). It's true the game fails in making the player laugh, but the puzzles and the story are fine... yes, some are illogical, but the gameplay is decent enough.
The Book of Unwritten Legends already became a cult, but that game is so easy that what really keeps it alive are the puns and jokes of the main characters.
This game is the opposite: it's a little harder but the jokes are terrible. Still, give it a try if you can buy this game for cheap. It's not worth the full price.
