I escaped! I found the writing in this game to be rather enjoyable, even if it did lack some exposition and background information. Information such as to how this war had came to be to begin with, not like the omission of such things were a detriment to the story.

I enjoyed this for what it was, and how old terms and weapons were used in certain parts of the story. It certainly helped with providing a decent amount of immersion :)

All in all, this was a rather fun piece of writing.

You have to ask the question why would I eat dinner with a man who is trying to kill me in his castle with all his soldiers serving the food? :) I suspect my character is not the brightest bulb in Scotland, good period detail though and an interesting read. I would have preferred it if it was longer and the story was developed more but the writing was good.

The story's not bad, the writing is good. However, please, PLEASE put the background information in the STORY, not the description. The game itself is a bit too linear, there's no logical solution as to which choice will keep you alive, so the reader ends up blindly picking links. Also, I believe that the "keep moving" link is broken.

Hmm it seems youre a big fan of this time period to be writing about this again in terms of setting and time. Honestly felt that there could have been more in the terms of description when it came to some things but the way you describe plot points in the way that someone is passionate about something is endearing.

Like the last game this one is pretty linear so not much to say on the pathing other than that you should try putting it into your next game as itll probably raise the overall score of it by a sum.

Some typos here and there but nothing too bad.

Lol also the part with the food gave me some fat game of thrones vibes which made me laugh a bit.

But yeah not at all a bad game.

Who would have thought that choosing the wrong food could get you killed in a game? What a story!

Really well written, I applaud you - especially if you aren`t a native Scot.
