Stories with this maturity level will not, by design, have any potentially objectionable content. An example of a type story with this rating would be a quiz on mathematics.

Live life like it was in Edwardian England! Choose to experience a day in the life of a wealthy woman at the top of the social pyramid, or a lower-class chef in a manor. 


EDIT: About the Ms Hale vs Ms Bennett question, Ms Hale's cards were highly decorative. I found out that cards were usually simple around those times, with more decorative cards being from the previous era. :)

EDIT 2: This is more of a school project, and not exactly a roleplay. :)

This was pretty informative, I enjoyed it :)

The information is told well and the pictures were a nice added touch to make this feel quite a bit more immersive and entertaining. I found the subject of social customs to be quite interesting, and it was also fascinating to find out how exactly people's lives differed from each other by a routine basis.

Making two different perspectives available to be chosen was quite fun, but this was also quite linear in its presentation, although I suppose that was to expected upon reading the description of this storygame.

This is a rather well-written quiz, so great job. I certainly wouldn't mind seeing you write something that's a bit less linear and more story than quiz, because I do see some potential in the writing of this storygame.

This demonstrated a lot of research into the time period, and offered a lot of details about life in Edwardian England that I had never thought about before. In that sense, I immensely enjoyed it, since my favorite part about learning history has always been the tiny every day details that make it real to me.

The spelling and grammar were flawless, and the pictures were all well chosen and appropriate.

I have to give a slight point reduction for the linearity and the length, but since you warned that it was not a roleplay, I went in expecting a quiz. A quiz is basically what I got, so I wasn't too disappointed.

So all in all, an interesting little game that was very much educational.

You made a mistake. Mrs. Bennett and Mrs. Hale left the same exact cards, but only Bennett's answer was correct.

Admittedly, I'm not crazy about how you did this... making a single mistake on a "quiz" of information most people wouldn't readily know and being instantly penalized with a game-over isn't really fair.

You could just tell us what's wrong and let us move on, or you could tell us at the end of the game what the right answers are...

You see, an automatic game over for a wrong answer makes it a linear game, a harsh quiz, and a poor means of education. You're not actually educating us, you're expecting us to know the answer and if we don't, it's game over.

-That said-, as someone who loves collecting random information about history, I found this game pretty interesting. It's well made. My guesses were usually right, which was satisfying in its own way and I already knew a lot of the information without guessing, but having to backspace to get through the entirety of it was irritating.

I quite liked the feel of this game. However, I think it would have been better if we had been told why something was right or wrong.

Very short, not interesting , hard to understand the plot,and there isn't a lot of choices to choose from.Its not the best story but it was a good idea but needs some fixing.
Thanks for sharing you story!

That was awful I picked to be the chef and apparently I cooked the wrong food?

As others have said, this is a quiz, not a game. However, it's an interesting quiz if you like history, and it won't be that hard if you watched Downton Abbey (except the footman bringing you tea thing...I'm not sure I believe that young male servants visited the lady of the house while she was in bed.)

This was kind of a quiz, but very nice story!
