    Short, yes, but Brooks is making progress- as I said before, it’s a matter of fulfilling potential here.
    Brooks seems particularly focused on laying out the two ends of a story- the possible outcomes for this game are laid out in the game description here -And letting the narrative be the medium players use to draw the line from start to finish.
    Honestly, I don’t think Brooks needs to try to maintain a sense of mystery. CoGs are almost inevitably going to be played multiple times, and while this game has seen an improvement on things to do compared to the previous Brooks title, the ability to fail relatively early on spoiled the experience of the first playthrough for me because some of the mystery was revealed. Brooks does utilize leniear narrative, which is not necessarily a problem. The Nightmare Maze was quote possibly more leniear, albiet longer. What I hope to see in the future is for Brooks to embrace this writing style- simultaneously two degrees east of other CoGs in terms of humor and grit. The difference between writing a CoG and writing for other mediums, after all, is that there is a aeries of smaller climaxes in the story, if at all. I’d love to see multiple ideas like Brook’s individual games come together with a slight absurdity. And I can’t help but feel that they’ve been writing a specific character as a protagonist, so why not settle a bit on am identity? Choice of The games let you be yourself in fictional situations, but that doesn’t mean every CoG does.
    But that’s just my opinion in a bit of a public letter. Good luck to all the writers out there.
