Inspired by reading more than one thousand Russian fairy tales, this is a story about love, spite, greed, modesty, humility and seeking. It is divided into four acts - according to the four seasons. That means you'll visit some of the game locations several times, but every time at a different season and in a different time of day.

I noticed that many people had trouble running this game, but I did not. I suspect that the difference is that I have an older computer running Windows XP. So if that is your situation. this game might be for you! I enjoyed playing it, mainly because of the goofy dialogue and voice acting. It is quite a strange story, but kept me entertained. It is an adventure game with lots of dialogue. The tasks aren't very hard and so this game is at a pretty casual level and would also be appropriate for younger players.

There are multiple glitches with this game that make it unplayable and, weeks later, they still haven't been fixed. Don't waste your money.

The game crashes all the time. And even when you manage to bypass a bug (compatibility mode), another comes up five minutes later. You make a sock, it crashes. You enter the cave, it crashes. You leave the cave, it crashes. After the cave, it crashes. At this point, it's unplayable.

I usually don't write reviews, but this game is so bad and I wish I read the reviews beforehand. It's definitely a waste of money. The voice acting is okay, but it seems like it's been recorded through a can in someone's home. And with me it crashes before I even finish the sock (which is the first assignment you get). Don't waste your money!

I was really enjoying this. But whatever you do, do not waste your 5 bucks on this. Buy a cheeseburger instead.

It crashes once you complete the sock in the first scene.
