riddled with bugs making it hard to complete

Yup, completely unsolveable except by luck and cheating. For one, it is entirely dependent on the RNG. I'll attempt a map, but a solution (at least, a reliable one) is impossible.

Pity, though. The underlying idea - two protagonists with different strengths and capabilities - is good. Unfortunately, all the GAC's weak points (and I suspect, incomplete planning) scuppered that.

With it only being included in the archives as a snapshot, with no attribution, who knows if it was intended to be released. I did notice, having quickly checked it out now, that if you quit and restart the game then it does display the author's name... the snapshot was taken after that point so that information hasn't been noticed previously.

Yeah, decompilers are on occasion useful for ferreting out information like that...

I agree that it might not yet have been meant for publication, but unlike some games out there, it is finishable. Barely, and with luck and a lot of patience, but still. No, the worst problem here is not that it lacks things needed to solve it; it's that there is so much of the game not needed at all.
