Well, I'm publishing something else now. It's a new fantasy game called Prophecy, and so far my longest game. My grander aspirations to fully proofread this for every single spelling mistake have fallen to my lethargic boredom and I'm tossing it out there for the masses. Well, here it is. I hope you enjoy it, masses.
*Sees 131k word count* *Sees time (12:30 am).* Welp, this is going to be a long night.
Review to follow
In short, this was a great journey. Prophecy had well crafted locations, lore, and interesting events to keep your attention and the digital pages turning. There's also a substantial amount of content, and it kept my attention for the whole 3.5 hours it took to go through every route I could find (~12 epilogues). Prophecy has a good number of things going in its favor, and a few that are not.
//Things that work well
//Things I have mixed feelings about
//Things that didn't work
While it may look like there were more negatives than positives, that would not be a correct assessment. The author is a seasoned writer and knows how to build an epic story that keeps you engaged. Prophecy is a great work, perhaps not the greatest, but I'd gladly recommend it as a great experience.
Let it be known that 3J was just tricked into commending the same thing twice.
*Benign laughter* it was entirely unintentional :)
I liked the modern language. It reminded me that this is Steve's world, and I thought it helped the humor. It kinda felt like a DnD session with a bunch of dudes off the street, but better.
The modern language definitely made it Steve's work, but to a reader who doesn't know Steve's persona, the phrasing would seem quite jarring.
After having worked fairly hard to have been near the top of the Sages, I can now say I know how it feels to be a human staring down an alien invasion. All those weeks of effort crushed in front of overwhelming force. (For the next two months, atleast) I, for one, welcome our new snake overlord.
If you want, I can send you Bug Reports that double as Captain America references.
Steve, this stuff is good. It's seasoned with errors, but it's good.
"We... uh, eat them,"
I enjoyed the rat-bug intercourse far more than I should have.
There's rat-bug intercourse? I must read harder!
I think Flynn is a representation of Steve. Mostly a jerk, but he's still lovable.
So Steve wants to kill every living thing on the planet, himself included?
Obviously. However, he may be under the influence of a powerful deity. I say its either Satan or Cthulu.
Well, I've come to another end that's unsatisfying either way. Yay me. I'll take advantage of that "go back" button and find a better ending.
EDIT: Well, I finished it and my only regret is that my path didn't have rat-bug intercourse.
Ah, very true. But, I wanted to see the bugs and rats especially.
No one won the commendations challenge yesterday, I think.
