It has been brought to my attention that our link forwarder was Russian made, which scared some people away. That is completely understandable, so if this was the case with someone here - please, use
What a great style! Fine storytelling and background create a lord of the rings kind of atmosphere. I enjoy such short stories with so many alternative endings.
What makes a good IF in my opinion?
-Not too short, not too long.
-A universe vague enough not to distract from the plot and that makes sense at the same time
-No "right" choices. Some games are just do the right thing or lose.
This game has all three. A wonderful and inspiring way to spend up to an hour with a cup of tea.
I also liked how sometimes entire piece of text appears and sometimes it appears part by part.
Combination of using parameters and plot branches also deserves a thank you to the author.
As for the cons, I'd say that some scenes can be a little bit shorter though the balance between reading and making decision is almost perfect.
I am making an app that combines stories like this one, and once it is out I will contact the author to include this story in Gamebook.
