  1. So I’m playing this right now and I am HIGHLY UNNERVED by the countdown to Wilbur’s death, every time you get the right answer. Can you mess up and get him eaten?

    • Okay, I played with the hope of seeing what would happen if he ran out of time. No bloodshed. But it’s still very weird. Remember when books by major children’s authors could be turned into video games? Anyone else ever play Below the Root based on the book by Zilpha Keatley Snyder? Good times.
