“I Did Not Buy This Ticket is, overall, a restrained and very refined experience. The repeated visuals (...) fit well with the narrative and design choices made by Rech and Ninotchka.”
8 – https://multiplayer.it/recensioni/i-did-not-buy-this-ticket-recensione.html

“Short, bizarre, deliberately marginal, this is a story that will push you to examine the recesses of your soul that you usually and voluntarily leave very deep in your subconscious.”
The Pixel Post

“LudoNarraCon is a digital festival celebrating “weird and interesting narrative games,” and I Did Not Buy This Ticket is quite possibly the weirdest entry in this year’s showcase.”
The Escapist
