Some comments about the episode from the beta test:
definitely one of the greatest episodes of all time, I'm putting it on my 10/10 list. this was a breath of fresh air after a long time,your work never ceases to amaze me. - TheNewGuy
This episode is very very amazing, all the puzzles (especially the final ones) are really elaborate and really satisfy you when you find a solution. And the story is just outstanding, I almost forgot I was playing SMBX, and thought I was playing an RPG or reading a book! This is actually the very first time I feel bad for a character leaving in a SMBX episode, it was very very very very good. Amazing experience. - 8lue Storm
