Gets a pass.

I always liked Arcana. What got my attention was the title of the hack. Maybe something new, but a tweak hack if anything.

There is a pro : experience crosses over. Good. A bartender sells beer. Makes sense. But it’s not perfect. The name change of a certain character just didn’t fit well. I remember playing this from long years ago and other than the experience thing and the simple dialog, there were really nothing different.

Got me playing this though but fails to break ground. So a soft recommendation at best.
