This is a very original DMOD. I think it hints at what can be done with the Dink engine. Some of the map goofs SimonK mentions are unfortunate and the overall linearity of the gameplay brought the overall score down for me.

The wholesale suspension of the RPG mechanisms (abilities, XP) is a bold move. I'm not entirely certain I like that, but it took a lot of moxie to try a stunt like this.

Future DMODs in this style should feature a bit more action and perhaps a but less intercutting. With all the seasonal motifs (I loved the fall and winter scenes), I expected some kind of Haiku.
