[PC] Eric the Unready (1993)


How:

Got on GOG.
Pros:
- Nice puzzles overall, not too easy
- Robust parser
- Some nice memorable music
- Fun text and dialogue, akin to Terry Pratchett's humor
- Light-hearted and enjoyable text adventure
Cons:
- Quite short, each part is just a few screens and puzzles
- Inconsistent artwork
- Very rushed ending

Amusing example of the game's humor: this character replaces all the R's with W's, hence you must interact with the room by using the same rule... "look at dwawing"

Heard of it since Amiga times, got on GOG during a Halloween sale.
Pros:
