Brilliant writing, story, and game design. Planetfall is one of the Infocom all-time favourites, dearly remembered by all of us who spent many a rainy afternoon surviving, persevering, laughing, and being frustrated and surprised by all its quirks. It is emotionally powerful, very well-balanced as to puzzles, and a gaming experience not to be missed.
