Mechanics Level Design
I'm into classic novels AND mystery so maaaybe I'm a little biased - This is a great game concept! I'm by no means an expert reader so I love that this game feels like it'll introduce me to new novels too. The interface is slick and easy to understand and the puzzles were challenging without being confusing. I chose "needs work" on level design because it was unclear if there's a "gamey" aspect to quantifying a progression in puzzle difficulty or other advancements. If it's 'as is' intention then nevermind, felt good so far. Thanks for sharing

Thank you so much for giving it a try and leaving feedback! I totally see your point about it lacking a certain "gamey" quality. Progressive puzzle difficulty is something I've gone back and forth on and will definitely consider further. Thanks again!
