A technology test of creating a point-and-click adventure in Dink Smallwood seemed like a good idea. However, while the idea and technique used for this are quite good, there just isn't much to do. Indeed, this is probably the only D-Mod I've released where I absolutely knew it was bad (but I had to release it just because of the technical side of it).

There isn't much to do... click, click click, wait, click click, read, click...

No plot, no puzzles. There is only one action you can do, and that is to turn on the speakers to play some WarCraft music. Woohoo.

However, it did succeed in having the mouse do multiple things... when Dink is in mouse mode, it will only recognize the left mouse button. No keyboard commands (besides Alt-F4) or any other mouse buttons are recognized. This was technique was later used in Exterminator, in how you switch weapons.

So, good for a tech test, bad for a game.
