A very intense story :)

The writing in this was superb and it did well in painting an elaborate tale, with little to no flaws in it's narrative. There were plenty of choices available in this, and each choice felt as if it had great impact to the story that was being told. So it really made me pick and choose each choice wisely, as there was consequences to not thinking things through.

Honestly, there's so much here that the author gets right. The atmosphere to be specific, as it felt quite ominous and spooky by a great deal, making this genuinely creepy in some aspects. Such things made this a treat to read to say the least.

Kudos for making a very well-written storygame, one that has powerful writing and descriptions, many choices, and some genuinely tense moments. Exploring every available choice was well worth it in the end, as this was a very solid adventure when all is said and done.

I wouldn't mind seeing more writing from this writer, or even a sequel, because this was very good.

Love love love this story. I actually felt nervous checking the different rooms and corridors. I could actually see the house thanks to your great descriptions. I do wish the ending was a little more exciting, but it was still a happy one.

This game is so fun! My only problem is I'm not sure I'll ever find a "happy" ending!

Never figured out how to beat it :(

Burned with my mentor, paralyzed and taken by the eye in the book. More wonderful ways to fail.

I was burned with my parents, suffocated with an snooker cue and my soul was taken by Langdown Hall. Wonderful. Simply wonderful.

Awesome game. The writing is good, and there's a lot of it - great job! Two things though: when exploring the ground floor, the front door is described to close several times, in more paths - when we enter the house, when we go back into the main room...
Also I think you missed a choice to go back to the hall after going to the back corridor.

But really, I loved this and hope you write some more :)

I did NaNoWriMo last year as an assignment for my GT (Gifted and Talented) class! I wanted to do it again this year, but my account isn't working. It looks like a very well-written story that you put a lot of thought into. :3

Thanks for the great feedback everyone :) I wrote this for NaNoWriMo 2015. Hope you all enjoy playing it as much as I enjoyed writing it!
