Review by Old Rooster The Experiment (AKA Experience 112) Developer Lexis Numerique Publisher The Adventure Company Released February 2008 Available for Windows Verdict: 4/5 Thumbs Up “The Experiment lives up to its name by offering a very different, shall we say, “experimental,” twist on how to play and progress in a game.

Review by Jen Developer Flare Media Limited Publisher Flare Media Limited Released March 6, 2002 Available for PC Time Played Finished Verdict: 0/5 Chunk Poo “This game has no redeeming value, social or otherwise.
