Caveat: I was given a review copy of this game, but ended up playing the free public intro instead.
This game incorporates various multimedia effects including sounds, music, some animation and even apple watch interactivity, but I played it on android with the sound turned off.
So I'm just reviewing the graphics and story, and it's a good one. This is my favorite Fwlicity Banks game yet, perhaps because I just finished mistborn and I enjoyed the metal-themed magic vibe and the wilderness survival aspects.
In the free intro to the game, which by itself is quite long, you play as the unwilling holder of a special talent: "eating" souls. What that entails and its implications for you are slowly unraveled.
Your main nemesis at first is a ghastly creatute, a red eyed albino bear. The confrontations with the bear were exciting, and you get a lot of mileage out of the game before the pay/ad wall.
The visual styling is gorgeous. The choices were all binary, and the story 'felt' like the choices didn't matter at first, but I soon found that options that seemed unimportant led to dramatic results; the author must have spent a great deal of time working on the different threads to allow this level of choice.
As a final note, I've given this game 5 stars based on my judging criteria. I've reviewed several of Banks' games by her request, but I haven't been afraid to give less stars when appropriate. This game is polished, descriptive, gave me a real thrill of emotion, and made me want to play more, which are 4 of my 5 criteria. I didn't like the binary choices at first, but it fell into a rhythm that ended up working for me, which is my 5th star.

Hello I do not have any problems or found any!! I just want to say I loved (and their souls were eaten). I read often but that was so awesome. I could actully see every thing that I was reading. Could you possible add new content for people who buy the pass for a story . That would be so awesome . Also I almost never buy anything in games but I had to buy the pass for it . I was so sad when I finished the story . Keep up the great work .

It was brilliant, sat around for several hours collecting all the tickets I needed then played for several more. When the end came up I was a bit miffed, wish there could've been more. Was really interested in Nox's character and tried to give her the benefit of the doubt whenever because she made me laugh. Thanks for writing this brilliant interactive story. I'm going to reset for another round.
