A great war is about to erupt, the greatest  the world has ever seen since the Trojan war. As the Greek city states are about to be engulfed in civil war, one man has to undertake a great journey. A dangerous road lies ahead, but you must take it, for the odyssey of one will decide the fate of many. This story is loosely based on the famous Greek epic: the Odyssey, by Homer.

Note that this is more of a story than a game. Depending on your choices, it can be either pretty long, or very short.

I like where the story is going. It has good detail and I like that the character has a good amount of speaking roles. The only thing I want to point out though is that you should explain some things in detail more. You seem to be a fan of Greek mythology but I am not so some things were a little confusing. If you fix that then I think the next one will be better. Nice job.

Mediocre retelling of the Odyssey, except it's framed as a new guy repeating Odysseus' adventure verbatim (which makes no sense). Very linear story with little value as a CYOA. If you want to learn about this period, just read a translation of the actual story instead.

Nice work! As a fan of Greek mythology I can say this is VERY accurate. Well done!

Not Bad... I think I chose the wrong branch in the story that's why it was "The End" for me so so soon. Thank you very much and please do continue making exciting mythological stories. :)
