Player Comments

The typos and constant fourth wall breaking narration makes this hard to read. The listing of information seems kind of lazy; you could have placed some well written dialogue instead. That would give us the same information without jarring us out of the story.

There are many characters but there's hardly any character development, if any, for most of them. This is, again, mostly due to a distinct lack of dialogue. Since there are so many characters in this story lack of development just leaves them bland and unmemorable.

I can't say I particularly liked the plot. Overthrowing a tyrant as the chosen one is pretty cliche but can still work out well. Some points of the story made me laugh but my favorite were: "theyll give you a log if your the chosen one" and "Its for this reason that she was locked up in a tower ever so high, 65 feet to be exact". The first one speaks for itself but as for the second...65 feet is not high for a tower.

I expect much of the combat choices depended on our stats and could actually have involved horribly complex mechanisms for all I know. What I do know however is that "Slash and chop" hardly makes a difference to me when the other option is "Slash and slash". Even worse it's a life or death decision.

SPOILER ALERT-(I appreciate Arthurian legends as much as the next guy but it just felt tacked on. Uther does have plenty of achievements under his belt as a character of his own. That Mattias becomes king by killing the former despot is pretty far-fetched.)

I do want to end on a positive note though and I will...try anyway. I kind of liked the RPG aspect of this; walking into someone's house to take things is certainly nostalgic. It's also clear, particularly with quite a few updates, that some effort has been put into this.

It was kinda alright. But there were lots of wrong grammar.

I enjoyed the story and game mechanics, but the grammar and spelling were pretty bad. Also, I got the second best ending because I didn't have the destiny sword… but there was never a mention of the sword before. That was a huge disappointment, because I'd succeeded in everything up to that point and then the game was impossible to win. Try not to do that in your future games. Having something sneak up and deny the player victory at the last second is just not nice and you hurt my feelings. - 5/8
