Thank you. I found the words painful, the design ingenious, the ending frustrating to locate, and the experience nigh-tearful. For quite a while I was afraid the ending was simply when you gave up, turned it off in frustration as you never found the blasted rope again. As it is not, I would say there is a second ending: leaving the game unfinished.
I am glad I did not take that second path.
Thank you, for sharing a piece of your soul with me.
