It is 1933 and America is in its fourth year of Depression. There is widespread anger at the banks and at the forces of justice. Against this backdrop the charismatic and carefree John Dillinger has emerged to lead a gang of hardened bank robbers and killers in challenging the American Government and the newly-formed FBI. You are one of his gang who rob the wealthiest banks in the country to buy the best life has to offer. The forces of justice will relentlessly pursue you and it is only by surviving deadly gunfights and high-speed chases that you will be able to stay ahead of them... Author's Note: Though the next story in this series should be Butch Cassidy's Hole in the Wall Gang I decided to skip forward a bit and write about a smaller group operating in a different time than my previous two stories which were set in the Old West. Dillinger was one of the closest examples of a Robin Hood type criminal that America has yet produced and I hope the reader enjoys reading the story as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Finished another great gang story. I loved the story, and I thought some parts were pretty suspenseful. I realized the lack of commas in several places and it bothered me a bit but other than that it's a solid story!!

I liked it. I think the era was accurately captured. It was somewhat historically informative too, but I feel like there could have been more content. Mostly it was just robbing banks. I get that, that is what the game is. But making it longer with more fluff would have made it a little better.

I made it all the way through. No surrender, no retreat and "no funny stuff".

3 in a row of good gang stories...

Absolutely nice. You managed to retain the format of choices used in your two previous stories of gangs.

Only shortcoming was it coulda been a bit longer, but that's it. I thoroughly enjoyed your three gang stories, and I sure hope the fourth will be enjoyed as well.

Worth it all be cents stored in ze basement. 6/8.

KILLED is 6.
SCORE is 160000.

Huh, I killed more people than Baby Face Nelson.

As for the storygame itself; just as good as the last ones, although I found more grammar and spelling mistakes and some sentences could be re-written to flow better. But overall, it was another fantastic storygame.
