Thanks for the feedback, all! Another question...
What do you think about the ability to go back a page in a storygame? Do you like it as a reader? What about as an author?
I agree too. someone should post this in the Feature Wishing Well
The back button is great. As a reader it allows me to explore all options and to avoid having to play through an entire storygame again because of one bad decision. As an author I don't see any downside to having a back button.
First time I read EndMaster's necromancer, I didn't knew about the "go back" button, so i spent like 3 hours trying to solve it.
After i found the button, i managed to get to the good ending in about 2 hours ( yes, read all the details)
Ooh that would be Awesome!!!
I love the back button and Ugilick's idea is the only change I would like to see added to it.
Agreed, this one change is the only reasonable addition to the storygames.
I use the back button frequently, and I don't believe it takes away from the game. When click the wrong link and lose the game, I don't want to go through the entire story (especially when it's one like Eternal or OTMS) to get to the same spot so i can take the different choice. The back button allows you to just click one button and keep playing the storygame, rather than having to play through the entire game again to make another decision, which would probably act as more of a deterrent than anything as it would just be a hassle to explore all the options.
TLDR: I don't want to get rid of it because I think it'll decrease efficiency.
I don't like the back button but we should keep it. I almost never use it.
I played Eternal before I found out about the back button, but I just used the browser's inbuilt back button for that.
