This was a pretty enjoyable quiz overall. I really enjoyed the illustrations that accompanied the pages, since this was a quiz about the history of art. The images made this quiz more lively.

Grammar and punctuation were also quite good, though I did find the lack of links on incorrect choices to be awkward aesthetically. I did like that each of the wrong choices had its own little unfortunate scenario that accompanied it. I honestly had a bit of guilty fun with reading through them all.

It must've been a bit of work in researching all of the information to place in this quiz, but I think that effort is shown quite well in this quiz. Still, I do think that a higher emphasis on the story elements would've been a bit more appreciated. Many times I found all of the wrong choice scenarios that lead to poverty (and sometimes death) to be more enjoyable than the positive outcomes.

I would recommend finding a balance between making a quiz that's interesting, but can also be appreciated as its own story in some way. The writing in this is quite good, and is something that I would certainly like to see more of.

In the end, this quiz is enjoyable for anyone that may hold an interest in art and its history, with some pretty good writing and interesting scenarios.

This is basically just an art history quiz. It's okay, but nothing special

Yep I went for the poverty option. A lot. Good use of pictures but no end game links make the game trickier than a one legged man running a three legged race, despite all the interesting storylines.

Not bad.

Not interesting, I find quizzes generally annoying. Since there was only one path forward, it wasn't very hard to finish. I recommend putting an 'end game' link on each wrong choice page.

I like that you tried to put some description into it instead of just saying "wrong choice." However, the linkless dead end pages were irritating, and there wasn't really anything resembling a story.

It wasn't bad, but I found it annoying that the storylines were irrelevant to each other.

The game was well written and very refreshing, I think the history and styles of art are very interesting. Although as jamescoker said, linkless pages do not look very good in a story-game. If you plan to make another game, please consider putting a link on every page instead of having dead-ends. A refined palette deserves a refined way to present itself.

Okay. First off, it would be great if you would put restart links on the dead ends. Linkless pages just look bad. Second off, it wasn't that interesting. I know educational games have their own niche, but I just didn't get anything from your game. 4/8
