I loved it, Denny, although it's a tough one. It's a murder mystery with aliens and very funny.

The main action takes place in a spaceport bar, and you're the human company cop, Alias Node, investigating the murder. As you interview your non-human suspects, you enter their memories and gain clues to help you find the murderer. The memories take place on each alien's home planet and tell how they arrived at the spaceport. You actually assume the part of the alien, and your abilities change along with your cursor.

The only difficult part is that the overall action of the game is timed. The time you spend in the other worlds doesn't seem to matter, but the time spent roaming around in the bar does. I made the mistake of saving over an important game and couldn't go back to get the good ending, but I plan on replaying it.

As long as you save each time you enter(or come back to)the bar, you'll be in good shape. This will give you time to explore and find the required steps to advance. Otherwise, becoming other characters(re-living their past experiences)to extend your knowledge of the suspects, is like having several mini-games in the mix. And funny!!

My favorite part was rolling the queen's egg down the track ala Indie Jones! I laughed so hard I forgot to get out of the way and had to redo that crazy maze. laugh
