Looks like one of those thinking type games.

This game is almost as frustrating as the book....almost. You don`t even want to attempt the book.

As far as I know, to win, you have to go to the point from which you can`t return. I stumbled into the doctors office, sat down, and turned into a beetle. I think I won.

I wrote that one in another forum. If anybody can figure out if this game has a way to win, please let me know.

Please.

don`t pester schmetterling anymore, he`s busy sleeping
go home
take mug
go to factory
click on rightmost door
look through keyhole
talk to whatsherface, she`ll be at your left
show her mug
go back to door and talk to otto
give otto mug and schnapps
don`t poke around, he`ll kill you if you see something you`re not supposed to.
take book
go home
get money from pocket in closet
go see advocate
ring the bell and talk to receptionist
give her the money and go see advocate
give advocate the book
take your letter

From here, I have no idea. I`ve given the letter to the guard, but I wind up waiting there unto death. My "Ex" girlfriend doesn`t love me anymore and doesn`t want my help wanted sign or the letter that she wrote.

If anybody has any ideas, I`m stuck. It`s solvable, but I suspect that is going to take a huge amount of clicking and getting lost in this very messed-up navigation system the game uses.

There seems to be an order to things.

Here is what I`ve figured out. Keep in mind, I haven`t figured out how to get from place to place, it is all guesswork.

Click on the window and then click on the jerkwads down there.
Answer the door, it`ll be the jerkwads.
Take the briefcase (left of the desk)
Take Frau`s mail (nightstand drawer).
Leave room and click on landlady
Go downstairs, click on Box 6, click again to zoom in
USE frau`s mail, take your mail, read it, but drop it.
Close box 6
hang up the phone and answer it.
it`s your boss, you need to work
frau has shown up, talk to her
go back to your room
take your timecard (top right hand drawer of desk)
take letter opener (on top of desk)
go to work
click on punch clock and USE timecard
enter office and go to your desk
open journal and get appt card from back
click on top right drawer and USE letter opener
don`t take anything yet, that`s just to dump the letter opener
take t

Thinking? More like running around randomly clicking until I finally turned into the infamous beetle. I think it took less time to actually read Metamorphosis.

Pretty naff. If Kafka were alive I`m sure he`d have no time for it.

The critique by Janusz Kazmierczak is pretty interesting though
