A fairly long fantasy CYOA game in Inform 6 with vivid characters, January 15, 2018
by MathBrush
Related reviews: about 1 hour

This French game is in a CYOA format. It’s an adventure story, almost novella length, set on a fantasy world. It has a tone that is lighter and appropriate for young adult and middle school readers. In fact, it reminded me of Norbez’s IFComp game If You Squint it Looks Like Christmas in its tone, genre, length, and choice structure (as a point of reference for ifcomp players).

I liked the story overall, even sharing parts of it with my wife. It’s a heartwarming and cheerful story, with vivid characters and moments of excitement.

The choice structure wasn’t what I’m used to; many of the choices were “do something awesome or leave”. I never tried leaving, because I wanted to see what would happen. Eventually, I become somewhat paranoid that the leaving choices were important, so it gave more weight to my decisions.

I would give it 4 stars if it had a save system. I couldn’t find one, and this is very lengthy.

Et si, après tout, c’était vous que le dragon choisissait ?, December 15, 2018
by auraes (France)

C’est un jeu à lire, peut-être plus qu’à jouer. Car qui pourrait croire, qu’à cause d’un mauvais choix de notre part, cette histoire puisse mal finir ! L’auteur pourrait-il nous laisser tuer son dragon ? le personnage-joueur, peut-être… mais le dragon ?

Le dragon de Yoruk, c’est le monstre caché sous notre lit. Il veille sur nous, nous accompagne, nous protège. C’est la part manquante, portée à l’infini.

Présentez-vous à cet œuf, sur le point d’éclore, et vous serez peut-être choisis ?

L’histoire est bien écrite et agréable à parcourir.
Le texte étant relativement long, il faudrait pouvoir sauvegarder à mi-parcours.
Il reste quelques erreurs et coquilles qu’il faudrait corriger (release 1 / Serial number 180114).
