If it's anything like its predecessors, yes. Otherwise, I have no comment.

Never heard of Molleindustria before but ah yes, nothing like classics like 'Operation: Pedopriest' to fight the dictatorship of entertainment.

...seriously though, is this version just a remake of the I7 game? By the same guy? Or is it a different author? Either way I'm seeing problems there as far as a comp entry is concerned, not that it may matter in the long run...

Hey guys and gals, it's me. Sorry about the game. Thanks to Duncan, I realized that the game isn't original. I played the game around a year and a half ago, and completely forgot about the game. When the Summer comp came about I suppose the memory returned as an idea for an entry. I'm kinda embarrassed because of this and I hope that nobody thinks bad of me. :oh-no:

Don't worry about it, Ryan. I've no doubt some rough reviews are going to come out, but you're new, young, and it's your first. Critics may critique, but don't let anyone embarrass you over it. It's our goal here to encourage your writing and help you improve your craft.

Anyone tries otherwise, I'll poke them in the eye with a stick.

No, no, no, no. I'm only saying that because I hate the stealing of ideas. And thanks for the kindly words! ^-^

Was there a point to the game (i.e. an actual storyline)? I just seemed to wander around a lot of very empty locations that didn't appear to have any purpose.

The original Flash version makes the point much better than either of the IF versions that now exist, though you still may seem to not have much purpose in it. Mostly you just try new things and keep talking to the elevator lady. You'll make it to the end eventually...

In the light of discussion of "Just another day" by Simply Ryan the game will be excluded from the results for the competition as it is clearly not an original work.
